New Thermal Imaging Camera For Chocowinity Vol. Fire Department

Thanks to the non-profit organization 500 For Life the Chocowinity Volunteer Fire Department has a $10,000 thermal imaging camera. The organization raises funds to purchase this type of equipment and then hands it over to fire departments in need. The new camera uses advanced heat-sensing technology, giving firefighters the opportunity to see into a blaze.

Studies show when thermal images are used the time required for a successful rescue drops 75%.

Now, Chocowinity Firefighters will be able to see through fire and smoke, locate victims faster, and minimize damage.
