Got this email from DJI and just wanna say congrates and thanks on being proactive and shooting us here in Oz a pertinant reminder email for our oncoming summer.
While there are no laws here in Oz about flying on total fire ban days its great to see that DJI are proactively trying remind the 1% of the population that  its not a great idea to fly on days of total fire bans or above or near emergiences.Anywho thanks to who ever in DJI put this email together



  

Bushfire season continues in Australia






       
Dear Customer,

As bushfire season continues in Australia, we would like to caution you not to fly near fire emergencies or other disaster areas without coordinating with local authorities. Doing so, even at low altitudes, may distract emergency responders or could pose a hazard to manned aircraft involved in the operation.

Geoscience Australia maintains an interactive map of current fire disaster areas:

It is also a good practice to check on aircraft flight restrictions issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority using a free airspace map service such as Skyvector.com.

We are very proud when we see our products used to help communities and first responders in disasters and emergencies. DJI technology helped protect fire fighters at a dangerous quarry fire in Connecticut, was used to help rescue victims during flooding in Texas, helped save two boys stranded in rapid waters in Maine, and assisted fire fighters in battling a house fire n Illinois just two weeks ago. Importantly, all of those efforts demonstrating the life-saving potential of our technology were coordinated with the local authorities. If you have your own stories to tell about helping your community, please let us know here.

Thank you and fly safe,
DJI

There needs to be more good press like this from others.

I 110% approve of DJI doing things like this.  It's great to remind some of the "idiots" out there not to get in the way.  I hate when they put restrictions on things that don't need to be restricted (stadiums 24/7).
