Was the foam trailer used at the mulch/log fire yesterday?

No, was not used. Its only for chemicals.

1200 GPM PUMP?
Rob Mitchell - 07/21/12 - 18:23

No pump. It has 1200gpm eductors. I requires a pumper to flow to produce the foam. The unit can in turn supply foam to another engine or aerial and produce foam on all discharges. The facility that purchased it has an fdc and suppression system that this unit will supply.
