FLIR Systems announces a new and highly informative CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials) training video series – FLIR PRIMED.

Available in English, French, German and Italian – FLIR PRIMED videos are a free, educational resource designed to provide first responders and security professionals with best practices for HAZMAT accidents and CBRNE attacks.

Throughout the video series, Grant Coffey, a retired Fire & Rescue Hazmat Team Coordinator and CBRNE expert of nearly 40 years, delivers best practices, industry insights, and street truth. In addition, each video concludes with a field checklist that responders can use right now. The first 5 episodes are available now for viewing at,, and

FLIR PRIMED episode 1 introduces the video series and the importance of CBRNE best practice using the Prepare, Recognize, Input, Monitor, Experience and Decision methodology.

FLIR PRIMED episode 4 focuses on Explosives 101. Explosives are one of the weapons of choice for terrorists. They are easy to make and easy to trigger. This episode discusses the key actions and considerations at an explosive scene.

FLIR PRIMED episode 5 discusses Bio-Agents. Biological agents are some of the most toxic substances known to man. But unlike other agents, their effects are usually delayed and can spread like wildfire unseen. This episode covers appropriate personal protective equipment and what actions to take at a suspected biothreat scene.

Moving forward, every 2 months, 5 new FLIR PRIMED video will be available describing best practices, industry insights, and real-life experiences to help you stay prepared. Each episode will be accompanied by a field checklist or downloadable guide that you can use right now.

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
