GOING THERMAL
GOING THERMAL — Obion Fire Chief Jamie Evans (right) showed off his department’s new thermal imaging camera for Obion Mayor Glen Parnell and council member Patsy Barker. Evans reported to the Obion City Council Monday night the camera and new air packs for the fire department have arrived and are being checked out. The equipment purchase was made possible by a state grant, and Evans told the council Monday night the county is picking up the nearly $5,000 local match on the grant. The thermal imaging camera picks up a heat signature and will allow firefighters to locate victims who might be trapped in a smoke-filled residence.
