Drone operation in wildfire or other natural disaster areas that hinders operations must be stopped. I propose that a radio jammer for drone control frequencies be routinely deployed as standard equipment to firefighters/rescue agencies. The jammer would send bogus commands to prevent control of and/or immediately disable all airborne drones within a couple of miles of the transmitter, causing the drone to crash. I personally believe these selfish drone operators who put people and property at risk deserve much harsher treatment than just having their toy taken away from them.
