To expand from the other tic thread. I am more curious as to how and when your departments are deploying your imagers. At what stage of the incident are you using your tic's? Size up, fire attack, overhaul.
Ours go in with the attack crew and the back up man is responsible for the imager.
Does get to be a little cumbersome because our back up man also carries a forcible entry tool and obviously, backs up the nozzleman. Yes, we also have a helmet mounted tic, but not many are very fond of it. Handheld is preffered.
