Sara Johnson (age 4) Visits Firehouse
Thu. Mar 18th 2010

Four year old Sara Johnson gets a tour of Southbury Fire's Engine 4 after stopping by Center Firehouse Friday afternoon. Firefighter Scott McAulay takes time out, after returning from a fire call, to walk Ms. Johnson through Engine 4 and show her the Thermal Image Camera (TIC as it's referred to by firefighters). The TIC sees heat in the form of Thermal Radiation that is emitted from objects and people. The TIC translates the Thermal Radiation into a viewable image viewable on a screen on the back of the unit. Firefighter McAulay explained to Sara how the TIC can be used to not only find hidden heat sources or fire in a wall, but also to find people in zero visibility conditions.




Sara is overwhelmed as she climbs into the rear of Engine 4.



Sara waits patiently for firefighter McAulay to show her the Thermal Image Camera.



Firefighter McAulay shows Sara the Thermal Image Camera and it's controls.



The thermal image of another firefighter is displayed on the screen.
