LONGBOAT KEY - Known as the night vision monocular, the device allows the fire rescue boat crew to see clearly at night through one eye which helps in a big way when there's an emergency out on the water. This crew is one of the only crews on the Suncoast to have these night vision monoculars.  

"The night vision has really opened up a lot of safety and a lot of ability for us to go respond quicker, more efficient, and more effective on the water," Longboat Key Fire Rescue's Bryan Carr said.
