Darlington County Fire District receives thermal imaging cameras
Darlington County Fire District has received seven thermal imaging cameras. These devices were graciously approved by Darlington County Council in February and were received this week. Chief Ricky Flowers says these valuable tools will be installed on each first out fire engine to further serve the citizens of Darlington County.
These cameras are a versatile piece of equipment that can be used to assist firefighters with finding victims in fires in homes or searching for a missing person in wooded areas or at night. These cameras can also be used to look for fires between walls to reduce the fire spread.
“We are very grateful to be able to serve our community by having access to life saving equipment that can increase a victim’s chances of survivability by firefighters being able to find them faster,” said Chief Flowers
