Capabilities and Limitations of CAFS for Structural Firefighting.pdf

Despite generally favorable reviews on the overall extinguishing capabilities of CAFS, questions and concerns remain on certain performance characteristics such as operational tactics, maintenance, and reliability. This project seeks to provide a comprehensive scientific study on the use of CAFS for structural firefighting. This two year project is led by California Polytechnic State University and involves a collaborative effort with the National Institute of Standards and Technology and Fire Protection Research Foundation in coordination with fire service partners. One of the tasks of the project is to conduct a workshop with interested and experienced parties to discuss safety effectiveness implications associated with CAFS, and to review and discuss the proposed project research plan. This report documents all pertinent information relating to this workshop.
