Foam Cache for Mobile Attack Foam Trailers

The WRHSAC purchased, in 2010, four mobile attack foam trailers, one for each county. These special trailers each hold and pump 500 gallons of foam specifically formulated to attack ethanol fuel based fires. They respond via mutual aid to fuel fires in the region. The Council established a foam cache to resupply expended foam within a 24-hour period. This cache was secured through a certified vendor. The cache is resupplied through the insurance reimbursement received by the hosting fire department for the expended foam. Since this reimbursement process can be time consuming, the foam cache allows immediate resupply and keep the trailers in ready response. The cache was established in 2011
