FLIR is on a mission to make high quality thermal imaging cameras standard issue equipment.Not just one TIC for every truck, but for each crew member in it. Without sacrificing capability, ruggedness or reliability, the Flir K2 Firefighter TIC makes that more possible than ever before. But extreme affordability is just one benefit.
The Flir K2 Firefighter TIC uses FLIR's patented MSX technology that embosses key details from the built-in visible camera onto thermal images, providing extra perspective to help you stay oriented and safer while saving others.
FLIR K2's design makes it light and easy to attach to turnouts. A single large button activates the camera even with heavy gloves on. And the brilliant display and intuitive interface on this firefighter TIC helps show you the way through dark, smoky conditions immediately, so you can stay focused on the critical job in front of you.
Fire the Flir K2 Firefighter TIC up as soon as you arrive to do your 360. See through smoke inside, keep track of others, and lookout for hot gases. Determine where to attack efforts, find victims faster, and scan for hot spots during overhaul.

Ratings & Reviews
Entry level camera
I bought this camera because our city wouldn't replace the batteries in our Scott Eagle, and I needed a functioning piece of equipment. I couldn't find anyone that had one, nor could I find any reviews, so I took a chance. It's a camera, folks, and it sees heat. It just isn't as robust as your normal TIC. The cycling refresh rate happens about every 30 seconds. This is when the picture freezes for about 5-6 seconds before it readjusts. It gets annoying and if you are in a hurry, you could miss what you are looking for. It doesn't have a retractable lanyard, and the connection they send you is a bit shady. It's basically just a little pin that passes through a loop in webbing to a key ring. The rubber cover to access connections to hook it up to your computer to change the modes and such are on the top of the unit and covered by a rubber flap. The flap doesn't stay closed at all, so I'm a bit worried about water and crud getting in there. Speaking of computer connections, it isn't Mac compatible. I learned this after I tried to hook it all up to change with the settings. So, now if I want to change anything, I'll have to buy a Windows computer to do it. And btw, the only way to change the 6-7 modes is to hook it to a windows computer and download their software and do it through their app. FLIR makes a rock solid product. They are the leaders in thermal imagery. This was an attempt to make it affordable for all firefighters to have access to their own TIC. I just think it needs a little redesign to it, that's all. The other option was to buy one of the new Scott mask mounted TICs, but after finding out how many AAA batteries they take, and knowing how often I already have to replace batteries in my Scott Voice Emitter on my mask, I don't know if the thing would ever be usable. Their products batteries usage is terrible. I can't afford changing out 6 AAA batteries every day.
We just took the K2 into its first structure fire this week. All members decided it was a keeper. The unit is much lighter than our previous Bullard unit. The battery life is also nice. The one button operation is easy with gloves. Screen is easy to understand.
"Is this unit NFPA 1801 compliant?"
Chief; The camera is not NFPA approved, but read below what FLIR says about it. -Designed to meet NFPA 1801 specs: Vibration Impact acceleration resistance Corrosion Viewing surface abrasion Heat resistance, heat and flame Product label durability
