New Foam

We had a salesman come by the station and try to convince us to switch to his new foam (we can add foam to the water coming from the engine to make it more fire retardant). His demonstration failed and we were really not impressed.



Please note that the two firefighters (me on the right with the hose), in full protective equipment, are standing several feet away from the fuel filled flash pan while the fire marshal and salesman are right up next to it. They are trying to see if the fuel will reignite after a treatment with the foam.


Standing guard (bored out of my mind because the salesman's demonstration kept failing).



Fire!



I put the fire out with...water. Imagine that.
