Montauk, NY - Live House Burn
Montauk FD, along side with Amagansett FD, East Hampton FD and Firematic Mfg, conducted a live burn of a home in Montauk, New York on Sunday, April 13, 2003. During the burn, Firematic Mfg. was allowed to test their unique Porta-CAFS compressed air foam system, against the raging house fire and also to protect the surrounding exposures. The Porta-CAFS unit, along with Firematic's B.R.A.T., worked flawlessly. It knocked down the fire within seconds leaving a silky white layer glued to the structure of the house. The Porta-CAFS unit was a major success both in fighting the fire and protecting the surrounding exposures.
