Firehouse Subs donates equipment to Hampton Fire Department

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation in Beaufort gave the town of Hampton's fire department an imaging camera Tuesday.

The camera sees through smoke and shows firefighters where in a building there is a fire, and helps find victims.

This is the departments second camera of it's kind, and it's worth more than $8,000.

"The other one is a bigger camera and had a different thermal heat index," Hampton Fire Chief Lewis Ramsey said. "This one is smaller, individual type of thing that one person can really use it to see and get into burning buildings quicker."

The department hopes to get two more cameras, so there can be one on all four of their trucks.
