Nassau County Legislator Denise Ford visited Lido and Point Lookout Fire District and saw firsthand how the thermal imaging cameras operate from Ex- Fire Chiefs Chas Thompson & Warren Jaffe.
When the Board of Fire Commissioners Vice Chairman Steven Weitz wrote my office and asked for assistance in obtaining funding to purchase three Thermal Imaging Cameras, I knew how important these were to assist our firefighters in performing size-up, locating and rescuing civilian victims, and firefighters, who may become lost or trapped during a fire.
“I not only secured the funding for the Lido & Point Lookout Fire Department, I was also able to obtain funding for the Long Beach & Oceanside Fire Departments. Eleven cameras in all!” said Ford.
