Thanks to a grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, the Woodstock Fire Department is purchasing three new thermal imaging cameras to replace older models.

The Woodstock Fire Department is in the process of upgrading some of its inventory of thermal imaging cameras thanks to a grant the agency recently received.

The fire department was recently awarded a grant totaling $19,242 from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and plans to use the money to purchase three new thermal imaging cameras, officials said.

Sgt. George Williams told the Tribune these three cameras were Bullard NXT model thermal imaging cameras and would be replacing some of the older models currently in use by the department.

“The cameras are the newest models on the market and will certainly make doing our jobs easier and safer for the citizens and our personnel,” Williams said in an email Thursday. “We should have them on the trucks and in service within the next 30-45 days.”
