Brookline Fire Company Foam Firefighting Drill
Monday Evening May 6, 2012 18:00 to 22:00hrs
For many years the Brookline Fire Company has operated a piece of apparatus to flow foam on certain incidents. The company trains with foam to keep its training sharp on the capabilities and application processes. Brookline operates a 1995 Pierce Saber Engine with a 1250gpm pump with a foam system designed by National Foam which is built into the pump itself. The unit carries 300 gallons of Class B foam along with 450 gallons of water. The unit is mostly used as a hydrant piece being that it is still a class A engine with 1500' of 5'' and 4 preconnected attack lines with one being with a low expansion foam nozzle ready to go.
