New Thermal Imaging Camera

We would like to thank Salem Township Volunteer Fire Company for their generous donation of a thermal imaging camera.  This device can be used to search for heat sources and hot spots involved with structure and wildland fires.  These can also be used to help during search and rescue situations to find heat sources generated from a lost person.

These devices generally run for thousands of dollars and can easily top $10,000 new once all the needed mounting and accessories are added on.  While the device was donated awhile ago, we have finally achieved the personal training and secondary equipment to place it on our Engine 1.
