How Firefighters Detect “Hot Spots”
I just watched a report about the Waldo Canyon Fire on my local
about how firefighters detect “hot spots.”
Want to know how they do it? I did. Given the Flagstaff fire, I was listening.
Is it via infrared cameras? No. Eyeglasses or sensors that detect embers embedded in the ash? No. A wand they move over the ground like a Geiger counter? No.
They put their freakin’ hand on the ground to see if it’s hot.
And 9News was so impressed.
USA! USA! USA!
