Introduction to Tactical Thermal Imaging
Date & Time
Sunday, November 1, 2020, 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Firefighters are required to formulate strategies and tactics at 15 times the speed as we did in the past due to the high heat-release rate fuels in structure fires because fires develop faster and are predominantly ventilation-limited with heavy, turbulent, black smoke that reduces our visibility. Tactical thermal imaging enhances a firefighter’s decision-making skill set by providing thermal data that allows them to quickly locate the location and severity of the fire. This class will help you locate tough, hidden fires via thermal cues and clues, Identify the flow path, determine the most efficient access path, and make enhanced stream placement decisions.
