Protection District Seeking Donations
Forman Fire is
seeking donations for the purchase of a new Thermal Imaging Camera. The
older one that we did have on engine 40 is outdated and has recently
broken and can no longer be repaired due to it being obsolete. This is a
very expensive item for the department to purchase on its own and our
budget is stretched very thin as it is with the necessity of updating
our equipment and apparatus to better protect our community. This camera
will be used for search and rescue operations. With this technology we
will be able to find a missing person. This camera identifies body heat
in dark smokey environments. This camera can also help us insure that we
have put a fire out completely, because it shows us the increased
temperatures in the house in places that we may not be able to see
