Hey Marcel could you please tell me what purpose this truck serves? with thanks from Tiger.

Hi Tiger,
This unit is a compact fire tender. It can fight fires with the One Seven foam system (sort of CAFS). Behind this vehicle they have a low pressure Rosenbauer Fox pump on a trailer. Very useful vehicle in the small inner-city. It can transport 6 fire fighters.

Marcel, Tiger:

The One-Seven is indeed a self-contained CAFS installation. With a 750 liter tank, a six minute 125 LPM compressed air foam line can handle a fairly serious fire, such as a residential one-room or a fully involved car fire. It can of course also be used for the initial attack on any larger problem while the trailer pump is being hooked up and engaged.

Some fire services are now actually reducing the water tanks on their newest full size pumpers because these have a CAF system. Vienna is a good example.

This means they can carry more other equipment in the locker space that is freed up.

CAFS utilization has been proven to reduce fire extinguishment time by between 40% and 60% in structure fires for the same water flow rate.

As a result, only about half the water is needed, compared to a standard high pressure hose reel.

The One Seven system is named for the fact that their CAFS increases the volume of foam to 7 liters for every liter of water - but this does not mean it is seven times as effective in real world situations!

But it does prove to be two or three times faster than a high pressure reel - as well as having significantly greater reach, so firefighters can stay further back in a cooler part of the burning structure.

"as well as having significantly greater reach, so firefighters can stay further back in a cooler part of the burning structure." Until such a point at which they reach a closed door to a fire compartment which has to be entered for either search/rescue or firefighing and at that point CAFS become positively dangerous as it does not achieve the pressures required to allow "door entry" procedures to be followed and such increases the risk of backdraft on opening the "compartment" door. CAFS is NOT an effective medium for interior structural firefighting in most European style structures.
