Parkman donates thermal cameras

Three thermal imaging cameras are now up and running in all Cardinal school buildings. The Parkman Township Trustees donated the cameras with Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act money.

The cameras are designed to take the temperatures of up to 30 people at once and alert to temperatures over a set threshold.

“The addition of these cameras in our buildings has been a time saver in the mornings,” said Superintendent Bill Kermavner. “The technology allows us to get our students inside quicker while still actively monitoring body temperatures for anyone who might be sick. We were seeing a backlog of students outside our buildings waiting to get in while we checked temperatures. On top of that being a safety concern, we are also entering the winter months where it’s cold and snowy. These cameras have been great at helping us speed the entry process along while still allowing us to ensure everyone’s health and safety.”

In addition to the thermal imaging cameras, which are valued at more than $10,000 each, Parkman Township also donated two portable sprayers for cleaning buses, 20 gallons of sanitizing chemicals for the sprayers and additional disinfecting wipes for use in all buildings.
