Every year since September 11, 2003, Legacy Church hosts special 9/11 services to remember and honor those lost on September 11th 2001. During the service, multiple Thermal Imaging Cameras (TIC’s) are donated to the Albuquerque Fire Department and surrounding Fire Departments. Their goals is to not only remember 9/11/01 but are committed to keeping our citizens and firefighters safe as well.
Thermal Imaging Cameras pick up body heat by rendering infrared radiation as visible light. They are used by firefighters to rescue people who are trapped in smoke, darkness or heat-permeable barriers. TIC’s are also used to detect hidden fire and have contributed to saving property.
“Legacy Church has a reputation of giving, being active in our community, and has established itself as one of our public safety partners in saving lives and protecting property”, said Albuquerque Fire Chief James Breen.
On Wednesday, September 12th Legacy will present the 15th camera to Albuquerque Fire Department and the 5th camera to Bernalillo County and Rio Rancho Fire Department at the start of the 6:30pm service at their Central Campus located at 7201 Central Ave NW.
