- Changing firefighting foam legislation (State and Federal)
- What is PFAS (PFOA/PFOS)? Why did we go from C8 – C6 – SFFF (F3)?
- C6 VS SFFF (F3) foam chemistry (What is the difference?)
- Applying C6 and SFFF (F3) on same fire – Are different foam solutions compatible?
- Does SFFF (F3) work? – How do we know it works? – Where is the proof?
- How does SFFF (F3) foam solution seal/vapor suppress without film forming?
- Why did foam go from C6 1% X 3% to SFFF (F3) 3% X 3% ?(Why do we think 3% will work on Polar Solvents versus 6%?)
- Chemicals of high concern PFHxA now a concern (phase out of C6)
APPLICATION RATES AND DENSITY:
- Define what application rate is
- Type II, III application methods
- Application rate for C6 versus SFFF (F3), why is it different
- Define density, what is it
- Logistics (water and foam requirements)
TARGET ZONE APPLICATION:
- Tank type III
- Spill fire (tank and dike, truck rack, roll over)
- Crude oil (why is this special)
- Land based Marine (fresh and salt water)
- How to protect? How does it work?
- Tank and Dike
- Loading Rack
- Sprinkler System
- Fixed Perimeter System (Oscillating Monitors)
PORTABLE SYSTEMS: (Strategy and tactics – how to use them, what are they for)
- How to identify correct equipment such as:
PREPLANNING, SIZEUP AND STRATEGY TACTICS:
- Preplan – what to know about your facility
- Size-up – Real time assessment
- Strategy – Rescue, exposure, contain/confine, extinguish protocol (RECEO). Water supply, foam supply
- other assigned resources
- Tactics – Task oriented, putting it all to work
- Command – Roles and functions
INCIDENT REVIEW: (Real life examples of SFFF (F3) in use)
Two days of live fire training – All live fire field exercises will be conducted using approved TEEX training foam
