    Which MSA thermal imaging camera does your department have? Is it the older BST technology or is it the Evolution 3000 or the Evolution 4000 (newer microbalometer technology)?
    The volunteer department that I also belong to are looking at the MSA Evolution 4000, the Scott/FLIR Eagle Imager II, ISG (same one the Navy uses) and the new Bullard TC3.
    My career department uses the ICC "tin/nickel box". It is heavy, bulky and tends to be left on the engines until it is needed or when it is used during overhaul.
    The manufacturer states that they are durable. The outside case seems to do well; our rookie class broke the visual display on one and damaged the case on another one. Both units were dropped inside a concrete fire training tower during nightime fire evolutions.
    Keep yourselves afe out there. It is better to talk to you than to talk about you.

    Our department has a Bullard (old style) Thermal Imager. It has proformed well, the only thing we would change is to have a transmitter installed to help with training, etc.

    Two Bullards and a Cairns IRIS. IRIS is still best for pure search & rescue - hands free. Bullard is better all around camera.
