Engine 11 is the primary attack truck of the Millington Fire Company. It is equipped with:
A Pneumax Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS). This system utilizes a 200CFM compressor and allows the pump operator to introduce a Class Aor Class B foam solution along with compressed air into an attack line with the water.
Class A foam is used for structure fires. By reducing the surface tension of the water, it makes the water "slipperier", and it penetrates better. Class B foam is used against fuel fires. This is the foam used at airport fires.
The compressed air increases the knockdown capability while reducing the amount of water used in a standard water attack. (In situations where hydrants are not close or there is a delay in establishing a water supply, the use of CAFS can increase the knockdown capability of Engine 11 up to 5000 gals.) Read about the foam system on the manufacturer's web page.

A 1000 gallon water tank
