    Post Thermal Imager - Grant Writing

    I am attempting to write a grant for 2 Thermal Imaging Cameras. I have a County organization interested in helping with the funding. Does anybody have a T.I.C. Grant that they would be willing to share.

    I am looking for a model to assist in the writing of our own grant. Primarily a strong justification statement.

    I am scheduled for a grant writing class later this quarter, but am looking to meet a deadline.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but here's some things I would include...

    - TICs sell to the public based on their benefit in rescue, so I would emphasize that in your information. There's a whole save section in the Thermal Imaging Technology Forum on this site.

    - Improvement of firefighter safety (actually their greatest asset in my opinion)

    - Locate lost/missing/runaway persons

    - More thorough smell of smoke investigations

    - More thorough overhaul

    - Hazmat ops

    - We use ours at MVAs if it's possible someone was thrown out (one of our crews found a blood trail one night and followed it to the point where someone picked them up.

    - Useful for any call where a differing temperatures will provide a clue as to what's going on.

    Also, give Four Alarm (800-784-0404) a call and I'm sure they can loan you a demo unit for a show and tell session.
