    We have 1 TIC

    It is somekind of Bullard camera.

    We received about 3 years ago (it was before i joined) All Fire companies in the state received them as somekind of state program. I have to charge the batteries and make sure that the TIC is in operating order.

    We got out first ISG camera in 1998. Then in 2001 we got a MSA. With our next truck, we are looking at replacing the ISG with a MSA 4000.

    We first started testing TIC's about two years ago, and they were initially only on a few units around the county. Now, most of our suppression apparatus has either an MSA Evolution 4000 or 5000. We placed the one of the largest orders for the Evolution 5000 a little while ago, and they will be on every suppression and Battallion unit very soon.

    The ALS Engine at my station got their MSA about 8 months ago, its a pretty neat tool.

    No, we don't have one yet. Hopefully someday soon. It will probably be our next major purchase. We just spent a lot replacing our AEDs and are currently trying to scrape up enough money to get a golf cart type rescue rig.

    I played around with a TIC at the NFA explorer conference. I can't recall what type it was but I was really impressed with the sensitivity.

    We have two. Both are MSA's. One is a 4000, and the other is the 5000. The small one is on the main engine, and the big one is on the salvage truck. We purchased the one on the engine about months ago doing fundraisors(SP) and the other one we purchased when we got our FEMA grant.

    We have a Bullard on our Engine. I play around with it enoough so that I have become familiar with it. It is a pretty cool tool to have on a fire scene, and pretty cool to use around the station.
