The Mt. Laurel Fire Depart-ment recently received a 4,000-gal-lon foam tanker worth $435,000through a Homeland SecurityGrant.According to Deputy Fire Chief Christopher Burnett, the Burling-ton County Office of EmergencyManagement sought the grantand asked the Mt. Laurel Fire De-partment if it was willing to storeand use the truck when needed.Burnett said the county is cur-rently working on finalizing itslogistical needs and the fire de-partment is training its personnelto operate the equipment.The foam tanker is mainlyused for large petrochemicalflammable liquid fires (a type of Class B fire), but it can be used tocontrol stubborn Class A fires in-volving ordinary combustiblessuch as wood, cloth and rubber,Burnett said.He said Class B fires can onlybe put out using certain chemi-cals.The foam tanker would alloweasy access to resources for han-dling a Class B fire or “stubbornfire,” he said.
