07/20/11 112 W, 1 I - + 1 - 3 Greensboro's New Flatbed Foam Unit

Found via Facebook via FireNews via the News-Record, check out this piece of unusual apparatus that the Greensboro Fire Department has placed in service. It's a flatbed foam unit, equipped with eight vats of foam concentrate. The things are pallet-loaded, and even carries its own forklift.

The unit is one of the outcomes of last year's Colonial Pipeline gasoline tank fire that Greensboro and mutual aid departments fought on June 13, 2010. Notes the News-Record story, GFD has added more training and new equipment to fight tank fires. Maybe readers can tell more about this unit, its capabilities, and where its housed.
