Do you know about a lifesave? Post it here.
Nothing works better to get support and funding than to show the public exactly what a thermal imaging camera can do. PR work with the public will go a long, and the manufactures and distributors should be willing to help you with demo units and supporting materials.
Of course the biggest impact comes when you can give them a real life example of how a thermal imager has helped to save a life. That being the case, if you know of actual incident where an imager is credited with helping to save the life of a firefighter or civilian post some information on it here. That way our brothers and sister can use them for PR work, and I am sure we can all learn something from them as well.
I have compiled information on number of incidents and will post the basic info here. Let’s get it out right up front, a save is a save, it does not matter what type of imager it was. The key issue is they all help to save lives (and many of them will be our own)and that is what the public needs to know about.
Good Luck, Be Safe,
