Department receives TI camera
The Roanoke volunteer fire department has a new tool to help fight fires, thanks to community support and HOI 19 News.
The fire department recently purchased a thermal imaging camera. The cameras let firefighters see through fire and smoke which enables them to do their jobs safer and faster.
Roanoke fire fighters are pleased to have a tool that can help them better save lives and property.
"The uses are limitless, for finding individuals lost in a fire, also you can find hot spots in a house or a structure," said Roanoke Fire Department Chief Steven McCann.
HOI 19 News was proud to have helped raise thousands of dollars to help heart of Illinois fire stations receive these cameras.
