Firefighters engage in critical missions every day. Whether it is putting out fires, saving lives, or protecting property, thermal imaging can provide key information at crucial moments enabling firefighters to work out the best strategy. Thermal imaging is their best ally in rapidly identifying hotspots, assessing the integrity of a building and/or identifying trapped victims. Thermal imaging also helps reduce firefighters injuries and fatalities.
THERMAL IMAGING HELPS FIREFIGHTERS:
When firefighters can make an accurate assessment of their environment, they can rapidly locate hotspots and determine the level of danger.
Fire breeds smoke. Smoke impairs vision. Thermal imaging equips firefighters to see through smoke giving them a clearer analysis of a scene, and thus an ability to identify dangers.
Thermal imaging enhances a firefighter’s capacity to confront all environments, whether search and rescue operations take place in daylight, low visibility or in total darkness.
