Use of Tag/Life lines with Thermal Imaging Cameras.
I am a District Fire Chief in a paid professional organization of approximately 200. Our FD currently operates with two Thermal Imaging Devices. I am interested in the use of tag/life lines in conjunction with the TIC's. At present we use the equipment on primary and secondary search as-well-as Rapid Intervention, but without tag/lifelines. We are finding that our members are getting into smoke filled situations quickly but on sober second thought we think that a tag line just might be a good back-up if we need to retreat for whatever reason. Any information would be greatly appreciated on the details and use of tag lines with TIC's! Thanks.
