We have CAFS on all of our first out engines. We have never received any formal training on using CAFS for interior operations. We know how to make water, foam and air come out, but we are looking for an opinion on the actual application of CAF on interior fires. From what I have read I think we should be using foam, but not at reduced flows. I am getting the finishing touches on an SOP and lesson plans for drills coming up in August.
I thought maybe you would like to chime in on how much water you actually flow with CAFS in 1 3/4" and 2 1/2" lines.
Any help is appreciated!
Also: check out the pictures on my page. The fire that is shown was fought using CAFS. The first line off was a 2 1/2" CAFS line. The knock down was quick and we made a good stop. We were however attacking from defensive positions. We did stop it from getting inside the house.
