NEW thermal imaging cameras will help to keep firefighters safer across Worcestershire.
A total of 35 new cameras will be fitted to engines in Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service stations.
Nigel Smart, watch commander from HWFRS, said they had undergone an evaluation process to choose the new equipment.
He added: “This consultation process was key in deciding which new thermal imaging equipment to opt for and we are confident our final choice, the Eagle Attack Thermal Image Camera from Scott Health and Safety, will meet the demands of the service for many years to come.
“The new camera will also enhance firefighter safety, a factor central to all decisions on new equipment.”
