PSA: Drones and emergency helicopter safety

Drones/quadcopters/UAVs can be a lot of fun to fly, take videos with etc. However operating one comes with responsibilities. There have been quite a few encounters across the nation, some have interrupted firefighting, law enforcement and helicopter EMS operations. Please be a good neighbor, check before you fly whether it's legal ( http://knowbeforeyoufly.org/ ), fly below 400 ft and ground your drone whenever there are helicopter or fixed wing operations nearby. Fly safe out there!
