TIC SOGs

2

Chapter 5, Paragraph 3

Equipment SOGs

3

TICs are intended to _____, enhance _____,
and _____.

assist in locating victims and fires
FF safety
reduce the time spent in hazardous areas.

4

One precaution of the TIC is that they are
______ and we need to consider the
possibility of ______ before using them.

not designed to be intrinsically safe
explosive atmospheres

5

9 uses of the TIC per HFD SOGs

1)to assist in primary searches
2)to assist RIT searches for downed FF
3)to assist in execution of initial attack
(locating the seat of the fire/shortest
routes to fire/holes in the floor)
4)to assist in overhaul
5)to assist in locating brushfire hotspots
and brushfire reconnaisance
6)to provide safer navigation
7)to assist in wilderness and ocean
search and rescue
8)to determine fluid level within a container
9)to reduce FF fatigue

6

5 TIC aids to fire suppression

1)locates the seat of the fire
2)aids in safe navigation within a structure
3)determines hot spots or material still
burning during overhaul
4)determines hot spots at vehicle fires
5)determines hot spots or fire extension
at wildland fires

7

limited visibility within a structure increases
the probability that FF will become _____.
4 things

disoriented
lost
injured
unable to exit the structure

8

thermal energy is _____ to the human eye

not visible

9

TICs translate thermal energy into an _____.

electrical picture

10

TICs can provide vision capability with ____

zero light

11

Thermal energy has a _____ which allows it
to travel through _____.

long wavelength
smoke and mist

12

the TIC provides a ______ view

black and white

13

if using a TIC, hot objects appear _____. the
hotter the object , the _____ it will appear.

white
more white

14

if you put the crosshairs of the TIC on an
object, it should _____.

give you the temperature of that object

15

12 precautions/limitations of the TIC

1)depth perception is limited
2)thermal energy does not go thru walls
3)human beings do not produce enough
heat to be seen through furniture, structure
materials
4)water, plastic, mirrors, and glass are
effective barriers
5)not designed to be intrinsically safe(do
not use in explosive atmospheres)
6)better to crawl so that you do not miss
trip/fall hazards
7)water, plastic, mirrors, or glass may give
reflective images
8)be wary of wet victims/FF that may be
masked from the camera's view
9)it can fail so practice all search safety
procedures
10)if bumped the unit could deactivate
11)ensure strap is not blocking lens
12)soot can build-up on the lens
