What Will You Learn?

FOAM:

  • Changing firefighting foam legislation (State and Federal)
  • What is PFAS (PFOA/PFOS) why did we go from C8 – C6 – F3
  • C6 VS F3 foam chemistry (what is the difference)
  • Flowing C6 and F3 on same fire – are different foam solutions compatible
  • Does F3 work – how do we know it works – where is the proof
  • How does F3 foam solution seal/vapor suppress without film forming
  • Why did foam go from C6 1% X 3% to 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 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)

FIXED SYSTEMS:

  • How to protect and 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 and apply logical equipment needs
  • Pumps
  • Monitors
  • Guns
  • Eductors
  • Proportioners

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 F3 in use)

  • Phillips 66 Fire Chief used for vapor suppression incident (Steve Pepper?)
  • Rollover NJ fire that used Universal Green Fire Chief
  • Other videos and/or real life incidents
  • LASTfire boil over incident
  • Shell converting all locations to Universal Green
