FIREFIGHTER TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGY

Firefighters today are operating in a very technologically progressive environment. Our tools are advancing rapidly and technology in the rest of society is advancing even faster.

Here at Modern Firefighter, we are developing articles about the benefits and limitations of many of our newer, tech oriented tools already widely in use, including:

  • Thermal Imaging Cameras (TICS)
  • Radios
  • Mobile Data Centers/Terminals (MDC’s/MDT’S)
  • PALS/PASS Devices
  • GPS Equipment
  • Gas Monitors
  • Rescue/USAR (Urban Search And Rescue) Equipment
  • Breathing Apparatus
  • Satellite and Aircraft
  • Helmet Cameras

We are also researching and writing articles on uses and potential concerns with emerging firefighter specific technology and non-fire specific technology being utilized by firefighters, including:

  • HUD (Heads Up Display) Masks
  • Drones
  • Cell Phones
  • Google Glass
