September 2, 2019


This skill video will show you how to extinguish
a fuel spill fire using an ARFF vehicle. You should complete this skill while wearing
appropriate personal protective equipment. Deploy the turret as the ARFF apparatus approaches
the fire. Activate agent pumps as required. Aim the agent stream above the fire. Begin discharging the agent when the apparatus
is within turret range. Operate the turret at appropriate pressure
and flow using prescribed techniques until the fire is extinguished. Adjust the turret pattern as necessary for
distance and fire/fuel conditions. Interrupt the agent discharge as needed to
determine fire/fuel conditions. Stop discharging when the fire is extinguished.
