Firefighter Michael Robinson displays his HeatSeeker invention on a Rural Metro truck
As we head into more weeks of hot weather, the Knox County Sheriff's Office is getting two free high-tech devices designed to keep officers and their dogs safe.
Earlier this year, we told you about Michael Robinson's invention. It's called the HeatSeeker.
It's a type of misting cap designed to help cool off first responders whose body temperatures can skyrocket underneath their heavy protective gear.
Robinson is a Rural/Metro firefighter, and he's now donated two HeatSeekers to the county sheriff's office.
One will go inside the K-9 kennel to help police dogs. The other will go to the deputy training academy.
