"Firewatch" indicators provide extra protection for fire-fighters

In discussions with the fire service,  a request to devise a method of monitoring outside temperatures in a real fire situation has become a necessary requirement, as each fireman approaches a fire with the uncertainty of the temperatures that might be present in the environment.

Two enlarged thermometer strips were devised and mounted onto the fireman’s glove giving 4 levels of indication in regards to temperatures being received on the fireman’s glove "left" and "right" hand

Such indicators were envisaged as being a necessary tool for fire-fighters equipment because the fire suits each fire man wears totally cocoons their bodies from the outside world.
