See Through Smoke from Every Angle
Handheld & Aerial Thermal Imaging Cameras for Firefighting
In the heat of the battle, a thermal imaging camera (TIC) is indispensable. These vital tools help you see through smoke and monitor the fire's spread, so you can quickly visualize your plan of attack, locate hot spots, and save lives. FLIR’s expanded lineup of TICs gives you the most comprehensive view of the scene—from inside, outside, and above the fire.
This is about more than seeing through a smoke-filled room: by viewing the entire scene from multiple viewpoints, incident commanders can make better decisions when directing resources. And, since FLIR TICs clearly visualize heat sources, they’re an important tool for hazmat and search and rescue operations.
The Extra Eyes Needed for Total 360° Assessments
Introducing the FLIR K1 Situational Awareness Camera—a lightweight, pistol-grip camera designed to give fire officers, safety officers and fire inspectors a complete view of the fire scene through smoke or in total darkness, without ever losing line of sight.
As a fire brigade we rely on a simple but powerful thermal imaging device. It has to be easy to use, light, robust and every firefighter has to be able to work with it without extensive training. That’s what our K53 does.

GET A CLEAR VIEW
It's all too easy for firefighters to lose their way, or each other, when surrounded by billowing black smoke. FLIR’s handheld TICs help clear the way and can even enhance the view with ultra-sharp detail for easier orientation.
GAIN A NEW VANTAGE POINT
A FLIR TIC mounted on aerial apparatus or a small drone provides a high-angle view of rooftops, upper stories, and tall structures. Drone-mounted cameras are also vital to search and rescue efforts.
INVEST IN RELIABILITY
FLIR designed our line of TICs to withstand the toughest firefighting conditions, whether it’s a two-meter drop, heavy water spray, or blazing hot temperatures.
