    Default Vehicle Mounted Thermal Imager

    This came up on the Chiefs wishlist.

    I just wanted to talk about these a bit and find out opinions and prices.

    - Are they worth it? Do they help a great deal with size up? How about driving in poor conditions?

    - Search and Rescue? Would one of these mounted on an 88 Bronco 4x4 do much good?

    - Cost? Are there any available that are cheaper then the fire hardned units?

    - Performance, how well do they perform, better then hand held fire TICs?

    - Makes and models? Never cam across many of these. How about the Bendix King vehicle TIC? IIRC it was cheap (how much?) and worked well.

    Does anybody employ one of these on their Command units or on their fire units?

    I see that GSA has TICs, but I dont know prices or if civies can even get them.

    Thanks.
