I had several options in which to base this post – “Nurture”, “Needs for exit”, and “Nightscan”. Not really having a clear cut idea of what to write for “Nurture”, and having already covered the Need for exits (KNOW your way out), I figured I’d try to do something with Nightscan.

According to Wil-Burt, the company that manufactures Night Scan®, allow firefighters around the world to perform rescue operations under the safest lighting conditions possible.
Most major fires & accidents occur during the nighttime hours when there is little to no light available. Being able to see clearly is paramount in the safety of all concerned when at the scene of an accident or fire. I tried to find something on the history of the Nightscan product and on the history of it’s use on Fire Apparatuses, but have yet to have any luck (despite varying attempts on google). I know something has to exist somewhere but it alludes me. It does appear that I good number of Stations (as well other EMS & Paramilitary services) utilize Nightscan as a method to light an incident scene.
I found this video on you-tube that shows how the Nightscan lighting system works (it’s a little hard to hear the guy talking).
claimer (or is that disclaimer): I have, in NO way, received any monetary (or otherwise) reimbursement for the mention of the product “Night Scan®” or it’s manufacturer Wil-Burt,
Remember Keep the scene well lit using NightScan (or other product) and StaySAFE
