Survey on Tactical Video Cameras and Equipment

Blog Post created by Michael Hazell Employee on May 18, 2015

SurveyUL and NFPA have agreed to partner to create standards relating to tactical video cameras and equipment (e.g., hand-deployed, covert placement, robot-mounted) and operational (e.g., body-worn) video camera systems.

UL Standards Technical Panel 3802 is developing a performance standard for these systems, and the NFPA Technical Committee on Tactical Operations for Video Equipment and Cameras (TAC-AAA) is developing an accompanying selection, care and maintenance standard.

STP 3802 is currently seeking input from end users to determine your needs and requirements:  who uses which systems, when and how they are typically used, and what features are used. The STP would appreciate your completing a questionnaire online.  

Your input is requested by June 30th so that it can be used to guide the path forward and help to ensure that the standard meets the needs of end users.

Additionally, the NFPA TAC-AAA technical committee is seeking members. Apply online to this new committee. Note: You will be asked to sign-in or create a free online account with NFPA before using the system. Remember, your voice matters, and this is one of many important issues relating to the fire service that NFPA wants to hear from you on!
