RS Pro donates thermal imaging cameras to volunteer fire-fighters
Thermal imaging cameras are used to collect accurate, fast and reliable temperature measurement during firestorms, in low visibility environments and in hard-to-reach terrain.
To assist ground crews of the Royal Fire Service (RFS) and Country Fire Authority (CFA), RS Pro thermal imaging cameras have been offered to selected brigade members across Australia, with the intention of freeing up funds within these organisations to be utilised for other means.
The cameras “will provide additional capabilities to assist and support the Brigade during current bushfires and in future incidents,” says Bill Henderson, president of the Hall Volunteer Rural Fire Brigade, which is one of the first units to take delivery of the thermal imaging cameras.
“On behalf of the Hall Rural Fire Brigade I would like to thank RS Components for its very generous donation of the thermal imaging cameras to assist and support the fire-fighting efforts of the brigade,” says Henderson.
RS Components, the distributor of electronics, automation and control components, tools and consumables, has already donated products to nine RFS and CFA stations across the country and looks forward to rolling them out further.
The RS Pro RS-870 thermal imaging camera is a non-contact method to provide fast and accurate temperature readings with point and shoot technology and thermal imaging.
