Fire Fighting Foam Applications : 4 Hours
This class provides the firefighter with a basic understanding of the common types of fire fighting foams (for Class A, Class B, & Polar Solvent fuels), the apparatus and equipment needed to deliver them, and the procedures for setting up and using them effectively. The class also addresses the logistics of large-scale foam operations.
Both transportation and storage tank incidents, with and without fire, will be discussed. Pre-planning, emergency operations, and post-incident cleaning and other activities will be discussed.
