Drill of the Week: Foam Operations

The objective of this week’s drill is to perform the proper sequence of steps to safely place an initial foam line in service, using units and staffing of the average number of personnel that ordinarily respond. Water supply shall be established with a five inch suction hose (minimum) using a hydrant water source. Flow foam at desired rate/concentration/amount in a simulated initial attack operation.

Members will demonstrate their abilities to create a single-line foam stream using an in-line eductor and foam nozzle (or attachment).

Remember to check department SOGs and manufacturer recommendations on pump discharge pressures prior to completing this evolution. Clean all equipment thoroughly.
