Infrared Camera used for Firefighting

Any object with a temperature higher than absolute zero emits infrared radiation. The hotter an object is, the more infrared radiation it emits. This kind of invisible infrared radiation penetrates smokes and dusts. In a fire, thermal imagers could be applied to catch these invisible waves and translate into a viewable image, which is called thermal image. With an infrared camera, firefighter can see through smoke, enabling them to find victims, locate the fire earlier and detect the structural dangers. Besides, thermal imager could also help to detect the abnormal temperature changes for electrical installations, which is very important for daily firefighting inspection. 

Search and Rescue
Searching and rescuing have been difficult jobs for firefighters. Traditionally, firefighters crawl on their hands and knees and grope their way through blinding smoke to find unconscious victims. This has been a dangerous way because firefighters have to rely on physical contact to locate victims. However, with thermal imagers, firefighters could see the scene and identify victims very quickly through the smoke and darkness. They could take immediate action to rescue the ones in danger and the fortunes in the fire.

Fire Attack
With the help of the thermal imager, firefighter could identify the fire source, the location of the fire and take prompt action. Besides, thermal imager can also help find hidden fires and ensure the safety.

Firefighting Inspection
The traditional fire supervision and inspection is mainly based on experience to determine if the fire danger possibly exists. With the help of thermal imager, a tester could quickly find the hidden danger. Any failure information related to chemical production facilities, pipelines, equipment, storage equipment, etc., can be tested by thermal imager to find the possible fire danger. It is really a most effective high-tech inspection tool for fire safety investigation.
