They received the generous donation just recently. A Thermal Imaging Camera (colloquially known as a TIC) is a type of thermographic camera used by rescue services. By rendering infrared radiation as visible light, such cameras allow users to see areas of heat through darkness, or heat-permeable barriers. Thermal imaging cameras are typically handheld, but may be helmet-mounted. They pick up body heat, and they are normally used in cases where people are trapped where rescuers cannot find them.
