Scott Safety will unveil their new firefighter mask with built in thermal intelligence system, Scott Sights, at the FDIC International Show this week. The new mask provides real-time thermal images for firefighters.
In the past, firefighters had to use hand held thermal imaging cameras to see through thick smoke. But thanks to advancements in thermal imaging technology, these new masks have a lightweight built-in camera and display that keeps the thermal image in view so both hands are free to perform critical life-saving operations.
The individualized visibility that Scott Sights provides allows firefighters to move quickly through rooms, locate potential victims, and easily identify doors and windows for escape.
Fighting fires will always be risky business, but we’re glad to see gear like Scott Sights make it safer.
