Jamestown, NC-- Firefighters run into burning or smoked filled buildings all the time, that's part of the job for them. But sometimes they need extra help navigating through smoke to look for people, animals and hot spots.
In the world of advanced technology, firefighters are not left out. Once inside a dark or smoked filed building, their extra eyes are thermal imaging cameras. The devices are infrared tools that allow them to find people in the dark or conditions with zero visibility.
For the past three days, it was school in session for 32 firefighters from across North Carolina who trained on the cameras. The event was titled the Thermal Imaging Technology School at Guilford Technical Community College.
Sunday, WFMY News 2 hung out with the crew as they trained on their life saving devices.
