Will robots be able make a difference in fighting firers?

If their affordable it should help.
The Los Angeles fire department rolled out the first firefighting robot in the US at a major fire earlier this month, CNN reports.

The golfcart-sized Thermite RS3 Robotic Firefighting Vehicle features two tank-like treads, a plow attachment to push obstructions out of the way, and a powerful water cannon

It can blast 2,500 gallons of wate.

Like you said, if departments can afford to buy them, sure.
The one in the video looks pretty powerful.
It pushed that car out of the way with ease.
I'd like to see it perform climbing over fallen trees etc.
Especially since it has to drag hoses behind it.
I would think those hoses would have to be super heat resistant, or it wouldn't be able to be climbing around in hot embers.

I hope it works and prevents injuries to our firemen/women. It could help save people.
