Comox firefighters have donated a brand new thermal imaging camera to Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue.
TI cameras have many uses including assisting with searches. CVGSR has borrowed TICs from the Comox Fire Rescue in the past as they have recognized their value when searching for a lost person.
“Our firefighters work hard all year helping people in so many ways,” said Comox Firefighters Association chair Terry Dean. “This is just another example of us trying to make a difference in people lives.”
“I am so proud of our firefighters, they are making a positive difference every day in the lives of many citizens,” Comox Fire Chief Gord Schreiner said. “These monies come from operating our Fire Training Centre whereas all surplus funds are put back into the community. It is a win/win for everyone.”
“This camera will be a great asset in the work we do,” said CVGSR president Scott Short.
“We are very pleased and excited to have received this generous donation from our good friends at Comox Fire Rescue.”
The Comox Fire Training Centre provides a full range of fire service training to fire departments around Vancouver Island and is partnered with the Justice Institute of BC.
