Here are some of the TIC sites on the web. Rather than sit here and listen to the debates of the manufacturers, you can go look at some literature and contact local sales reps. Get the cams out and evaluate.

You just had to get that in there. Nothing like throwing the name at every chance.

LHS Ė Help me out here. I hit your link but couldnít find anything relating to firefighting. Am I missing something or is that just an FYI site relating to IR technology.

I don't know, they look just fine on the roof of the trucks and work pretty good too.

If you arent understanding Larry's link..Read Fire-Rescue Mag. Some depts have installed thermal imagers on the apparatus roof to allow them a good size-up on the way in. Not sure who uses them but i think its a neat idea. Another thing for the toolbox.
The opinions and views expressed herin are solely mine and not on the behalf of any department or organization I belong to.

Once again Iíll ask the question, is there some part of the web site which has specific info concerning the fire service. Your answer said nothing except your department has some device mounted on the roof related to the company. I have read the articles showing thermal imagers mounted on apparatus for size up, but see no reference to them on this site. Am I missing something?
Maybe this should be the subject for another post, but how much of a structure can you size up while approaching from the street. Do your construction codes require a track to be provided surrounding all buildings so you can get your 360-degree view? I guess if your willing to spend the money(and you have it) for something like that itís OK, but I think the rest of us are still trying to get sufficient numbers of handheld units into service.
If Iím wrong, please open a new post on Vehicle Mounted TICís and why they make sense.
