Darlington County Fire District gets seven new thermal imaging cameras
Darlington County Fire District has received seven thermal imaging cameras. The devices were approved by Darlington County Council in February and were received last month.
Chief Ricky Flowers said the cameras will be installed on each first out fire engine to further serve the citizens of Darlington County.
He said the 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. They 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 Flowers.
