K9 Response is an independent fire-dog detection service made up of Dog Handler Duncan Carmichael and the highly-trained fire investigation dog Billy. The pair are responsible for working alongside fire investigators and police to collect evidence in the aftermath of suspicious blazes.
The pair utilises a custom Skoda Yeti to travel to sites across Scotland, and the North of England, attending fire sites to ensure evidence is properly recovered to authorities in cases where arson is suspected and to visit schools, open days and public events to raise fire safety awareness.
The team have installed WCCTV’s overt vehicle fitted solution, allowing them to send live video from sites back to a local control room no matter where they are deployed.
The camera allows them to capture crucial evidence on film and help them confirm hoax calls, saving valuable time and money for the Fire Service.
The camera can also be easily detached from the vehicle, allowing the team to take it onto the site and record evidential quality images from the site.
“Being able to instantly transfer live images from a suspected arson site back to a control room, no matter where we are in the is ideal for a remote unit such as K9 Response. It allows us to communicate effectively with authorities at crucial times and work in a truly flexible manner.
I’ve also been impressed with the customer service we received from WCCTV, particularly the training we were given, which allowed us to get the most out of the equipment.”
