The San Rafael Fire Foundation delivered a grant of $2,847.48 to the San Rafael Fire Department to complete the purchase of six Flir 50 thermal imaging cameras (TIC). The SRFF grant, along with grants from other sources, completed the funding needed for this purchase. The grant was made possible through a generous grant from SRFF Board member, Jeff Craemer.

“Thermal Imaging Cameras serve as a vital life-saving tool for firefighters.  The devices see through dense smoke to help firefighters locate and rescue people and through walls to locate hot spots. The cameras save time and lives,” said Fire Chief Christopher Gray. “Thanks to assistance from the San Rafael Fire Foundation,  we are able to assign several new cameras to Engines throughout San Rafael where they will directly benefit our residents.”
