Hose and foam training

Last night E412 and S414 went out in Reisterstown and did some foam and hose training. E412 is one of the few engines in the county that has a Compressed Air Foam System.  We use CAFS as part of our standard operating procedures as it has many advantages over plain water.  It performs a faster knock down and absorbs more heat with less water.  This will limit property damage and increase firefighter safety.

The foam is essentially dish soap and the picnic table was washed off before we left.
