08/24/13 102 W, 1 I - + 6 - 2 Johnston County Foam Unit in Action

Here's a picture of Johnston County's foam unit in action at a recycling yard fire in Clayton yesterday. See more photos from Jason Thompson at Jocofire.com. He also has video forthcoming. The unit is a 2007 Hino with a 2,000 GPM foam monitor and 1,500 gallons of foam in containers on two pallets. See prior posting. Maybe readers can detail the unit's full equipment and response protocols. Next question, how many foam units do we have in the area these days? RDU airport. Raleigh, Apex with trailers. Johnston County/Selma. Who else?

The Foam Unit is owned by the County and housed and operated by the Selma Fire Department. The Foam is owned by the Town of Selma and was acquired through a joint purchase with funding from several Petroleum Companies and the Town. The unit carries 6 – 265 gallon totes of Thunderstorm 1×3 AR_AFFF Foam Concentrate. Its capabilities include: 2 hand line foam eductors for 2 1/2 and 1 1/2, a 2000GPM Master stream with a self educting nozzle, and an around the pump proportioner capable of turning any fire pump into a foam pumper. The Unit is available to anyone who requests it and will respond with 2 firefighters. Call Selma if you would like some training with the Unit. We also converted the old Unit to transport 4 totes of foam.
