PHOTOS: When the Beeville Volunteer Fire Department received its latest piece of firefighting technology, it took Assistant Chief Kirk Delgado just four words to sum up what it would do for the department. “This will save lives,” Delgado quipped, describing the MSA Lunar, an advanced thermal imaging and search-and-rescue device manufactured by MSA Safety. The Lunar is a handheld wireless image device that can detect heat signatures as well as the edges of doors and windows. Edge detection, according to the device’s description from MSA, is a “thermal palette exclusive to Lunar, which accentuates areas of temperature difference with bright green highlight over a white-hot overlay.” It’s not the department’s first wireless thermal imaging device, but it is about half the size of the department’s current device, making it much easier for firefighters to carry with them while battling a blaze.
