Aid in Infrared
Visible: Default View
Aid in InfraredThe firefighter's most critical job is to save lives. But in a smoky room it may be difficult to find unconscious victims unless they are literally underfoot. By using infrared cameras, firefighters can easily see the glow of a human even when the lights are out and the room is filled with smoke.
Visible: In thick smoke, it may be impossible to see even nearby victims.
Infrared: An unconscious fire victim glows brightly in infrared light.
