  • Description

    Make sure fire-fighting foam equipment responds on demand with the new 2014 NFPA 412.

    The subject of airport fire safety remains paramount at our nation's travel hubs, and the proper use of equipment, agents, and aircraft foam is a critical concern. NFPA 412: Standard for Evaluating Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Foam Equipment is the standard for managing, regulating, and inspecting fire-fighting foam equipment to ensure effective deployment when needed.

    Manage, maintain and inspect foam equipment on ARFF vehicles.

    Aircraft rescue and fire-fighting (ARFF) vehicles must produce extinguishing foam evenly and safely. NFPA 412 is an important standard for ARFF teams as they maintain and inspect the equipment responsible for that foam, including hand lines, turret nozzles, and ground sweep nozzles. All such equipment is regulated by a separate standard -- NFPA 414 -- leaving this document to cover the runway foam equipment in particular.

    The 2012 NFPA 412 includes updated test and evaluation methods.

    This new edition has been updated to reflect a variation in the evaluation of foam, allowing a wider variety of test methods to be used. To get all the latest information and resources governing aircraft foam safety, please request your copy of NFPA 412 today. (Softbound, 14 pp., 2014)
