CFA Thermal Imaging Camera

Chelsea Rotary contributed $2000 towards the cost of this important piece of equipment. The camera helps firefighters to locate people in dark, smoke-filled environments and is sensitive enough to detect recent footprints. It has other operational modes that can detect hot spots and help identify fire sources as well as hazardous material leaks. It can also hold up to 2 hours of normal video, allowing operations to be reviewed for training purposes.
