The Vision C5 face piece incorporates the latest technology to enhance situational intelligence while providing a customizable solution to meet the changing needs of today’s firefighter.
By integrating TFT’s exclusive pressure relief, a 33 percent increase in flow rates yields only a 33 percent increase in reaction force.
In my training, I discuss the “White Hat Syndrome,” which requires the use of a TI to conduct a safety test and understand what it means and how it can protect firefighters.
TFT has introduced all new high-rise kits that help eliminate cumbersome hoseline setups and allow for easy visibility of the supply pressure at the standpipe.
The Vulcan® 180 HAZ-LO® Lantern is a rechargeable, waterproof, intrinsically safe, multifunction lantern featuring the latest in power LED technology and two blue safety tail-light LEDs for rear visibility.
Each Kochek HiRise Kit contains two spanner wrenches, one line-pressure gauge, one 09k valve, and one 2.5-inch elbow.
Attack lines may get most of the attention during a structure fire, but it’s the LDH supply lines that make their prolonged use possible, essentially serving as above-ground water mains.
Specialized drafting equipment used by departments runs the gamut from hard sleeves, strainers, and check valves to portable water tanks and small pumps used by wildland firefighters to draft from remote water sources.
Providing the most accurate, timely, and reliable information possible is the backbone of most good fireground decisions, and a thermal imager (TI) can help with that.
While thermal imaging is finding its way into self-contained breathing apparatus equipment to provide firefighters with hands-free imaging, handheld units continue to be the most prevalent type of thermal imaging camera (TIC) being used by fire departments across the country and continue to grow in numbers being issued to fire crews.
