Enkätstudie om användning av värmekamera vid brand i byggnad

Research output: Book/ReportReport


Thermal cameras can be used in building fires, for example, to locate people or find concealed fires. In this report, the result from a questionnaire study, on the use of thermal cameras in the fire service, is presented. The questionnaire consisted of 20 questions and it was answered by a total of 88 people from fire services in Sweden. The questions can be divided into the following three areas: training and experience with thermal cameras, use of thermal cameras, and self-assessment of knowledge level. The result from the questionnaire indicates that the thermal camera is used to a great extent in Swedish fires services. The thermal camera is used by virtually all positions in the force. Although most of the respondents have practical training and training on interpretation of data, most believe that they need additional training on the thermal camera. It is obvious that theoretical and practical training is required and that a good knowledge in heat transfer and the function of the thermal camera is necessary in order to be able to interpret data and uses the thermal camera correctly.
