The FLIR K1 Situational Awareness Camera is a lightweight, pistol-grip thermal imaging camera designed to give a complete view of the fire scene through smoke or in total darkness, without ever losing line of sight.
This 160 × 120 pixel, thermal camera helps you see through smoke or in total darkness, for additional situational awareness that is not possible with the naked eye.
With a bright, integrated torchlight, the FLIR K1 illuminates the scene so you can navigate easily and manage the crew more effectively.
The FLIR K1 is pocket-portable or attaches easily to a belt using the included pouch so it’s always on hand for investigations around buildings, industrial settings, traffic accidents, bushfire calls, or search and rescue activities.
At under $900 AUD, the FLIR K1 will allow more emergency service workers to adopt the power of thermal imaging. At that price, the VFFA would like every NSW RFD fire brigade or fire truck to have a FLIR K1 Situational Awareness Camera.
