    Post Updated TI Reference Material List

    Hello All,

    My apologies for taking so long to update this list, life is crazy. Below you will find a list of articles and videos on thermal imaging. If you or your department does not have access to these publications I would recommend you contact the Learning Resource Center at the NFA. The wesite is www.usfa.fema.gov/lrc/ , they have an interlibrary loan program and will copy & send articles in some cases.

    If anyone knows of additional material not listed here please email me or add it as a reply.

    I would like to thank the following for their input :
    Chief Hale, Rattlesnake FD, CO
    Steven Woodworth, Atlanta FD & SafeIR
    Chief Werner, Charlottesville FD, VA

    Good Luck, Be Safe
