The Safety Equipment Institute has issued certifications for the first time to the new criteria in NFPA 1801, Standard on Thermal Imagers for the Fire Service, 2013 Edition. This edition had an effective date of June 18, 2012.

SEI, based in McLean, Va., announced Jan. 16 that it has issued certifications to the 2013 edition to three manufacturers:
