FLIR PRIMED Episode 30: Drones and Thermal Imaging Cameras

UAS, UAV, or Drone – whatever you call it, when a thermal imaging camera or TIC is mounted to it, incident commanders can make faster, more-informed decisions. In FLIR PRIMED episode 30, Grant Coffey is joined by Scappoose, Oregon’s Division Chief and Fire Marshal, to discuss scenarios where a TIC-mounted drone provides key situational awareness: thick smoke covering the air during wildfire operations, rivers with continuous maze of turns during search and rescue efforts, and for rural agencies who have limited manpower.
