General Description of Requirement
Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services (VFRS) is replacing its compliment of approximately seventy (70) thermal imaging cameras.
The current thermal imaging cameras in use by VFRS have come to the end of their life cycle and due for replacement. The cameras are a vital tool for firefighters and are used daily to aid in making critical strategic and tactical decisions. Most importantly they are used to assess the conditions in hazardous environments with little or no visibility which greatly assists in maintaining firefighter safety.
