SAFE-IR, Inc. has trained dozens of fire departments in the use of thermal imagers. A list of contacts and references can be provided upon request. Here are what our customers have had to say:

When you can't see into a room, you need to be confident in use of your imager.


  • "Finally got to use your knowledge in a fire a few weeks ago when We were first on scene to a working row house fire.  Simply put,It went almost exactly how you taught. Got a chance to read the image as soon as we made entry to the front door, follow the path, find the source and knock it down.... It's been a great experience to put your teachings into use."
