Download this FireRescue1 thermal imaging cameras buying guide to learn key steps for product selection, purchasing and implementation


Thermal imaging cameras (TICs) are one of the essential technological aides that can enhance firefighter safety. By rendering infrared radiation (IR) as visible light, TICs give firefighters the ability to identify areas of heat through smoke and darkness. This helps firefighters find fire in structures and search for victims, among other uses.

In a recent FireRescue1 reader poll, 31% of respondents selected thermal imagers as the fire service equivalent to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s moon landing “giant leap” of 1969.

And the technology is only continuing to improve.

This FireRescue1 guide provides information on what fire departments need to consider when evaluating TICs and determining how to integrate this invaluable technology into their equipment cache. Included in this guide:

  • Key considerations before purchasing
  • Questions to ask vendors
