ABSTRACT
The article advises fire chiefs and firefighters on evaluating thermal-imaging cameras for firefighting work. The first factor considered should be the impact of the camera on firefighter safety. The camera should have a clearly visible low-battery warning and long-lasting batteries. It should work in extremely hot environments. Training of firefighters in using the imager is also important. Users must know how to interpret infrared images.
