Search and Rescue Infrared Thermography for Speed and Safety

Accurate and efficient search and rescue gear.

In an emergency, first responders rely on infrared cameras to help make informed decisions and act quickly. From fighting fires to search and rescue missions, thermal cameras understand their surroundings through thick smoke and complete darkness. They map out the surface and environmental temperature to the degree. This allows rescuers on the ground or in the air to assess a hazardous situation using quantitative data. Infrared cameras can accurately locate a fire’s hot spots, trapped victims, and potential dangers. Ensure that your team stays safe while saving others.

Search and rescue teams use thermal imaging during structural fires, wildfires, mountain searches, sea rescues, and more. Whether it’s a handheld camera mapping the flames around you, or an unmanned drone monitoring large areas, infrared search, and rescue equipment helps your team take control of an emergency.

Infrared Camera options for Search and Rescue.

ICI’s infrared search and rescue tools are highly accurate, quick, and designed to withstand extreme environments.
From fighting fires to searching for missing persons, ICI has a solution for you.

Unmanned Infrared Systems

Infrared cameras have the ability to be mounted on drones, unmanned trucks/cars, and small planes. These types of thermal cameras excel at detecting pest invasions, roof leaks, ice damage, and many other common problems from crawl spaces to roofs. Using unmanned cameras helps ensure the safety of your inspectors.

Handheld Thermal Cameras

If portability is a must, handheld infrared cameras are the solution for you. They are perfect for improving the thermal performance of a building, general thermal building inspection, or even testing thermally efficient building materials.

Applications for infrared rescue and firefighting equipment


Monitor the fire until it is put out. Infrared cameras locate hot spots, escape routes, and victims, so you can act quickly and safely.

FAQ: Infrared search and rescue gear

What is an infrared drone inspection?

Infrared rescue equipment shows you where the danger lies. These cameras create heat maps that first responders read to assess and monitor a situation. When rescuers arrive at the scene, they use thermal imaging to locate flare ups, safe routes, and individuals through the smoke and fire. In the case of missing or lost persons, aerial drones can quickly fly over large areas to detect signs of life. From a snowy mountain search to an earthquake rescue, infrared cameras pinpoint the exact areas in which to send out ground teams. This saves valuable time, resources, and ultimately lives.

How can infrared in the energy industry help save money?

ICI makes infrared search and rescue gear for first responders to use both on the ground and in the air. We design handheld cameras such as the Fire XT P-series specifically for firefighters and rescuers. These rugged cameras see through thick smoke and other harsh conditions. They are able to withstand temperatures up to 1200 C and have a drop test rating of 2 m.  ICI also makes the FX 160 and the FX 368 FireFighter P-Series for firefighters. All our handheld cameras work on the spot to accurately map out heat down to the exact temperature. For getting above an emergency, ICI carries infrared cameras mounted to aerial drones or helicopters. These solutions allow search and rescue teams to quickly find missing persons or fire victims. Infrared drones also help firefighters detect, monitor, and contain the blaze they are fighting.
