Fire Service Webinar: Firefighting Foam Considerations for Fire Departments

Now available on-demand!

Live Webinar: January 19, 2022; 11 AM - 12:30 PM EST

It seems as though the regulatory landscape for firefighting foams in the environment is changing weekly, if not more frequently. Some states have passed legislation banning fluorine-containing foams, others have done statewide foam concentrate take-backs and required reporting of any use of the products. It can confuse fire officers and fire protection engineers.

This webinar will review the current state of regulatory considerations for the use of these materials, and offer practical considerations for both flammable liquids firefighting and the ability to test/store firefighting liquids containing PFAS.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will understand the current US regulatory landscape for firefighting foams in the environment
  • Attendees will understand the challenges of changing foam protection for industrial flammable liquid hazards to products that are more environmentally-friendly.This includes fixed and mobile systems.
