Buckley Fire Department adopts safer procedures when using fire extinguishing foam

The recirculating mechanism used to test fire truck pumps sits ready for use Dec. 20, 2017, on Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado. After hazardous chemicals from foam used to fight fires were found at dangerous levels in the water table in Colorado Springs, Colorado, new procedures and practices were developed by the Air Force in order to prevent a similar incident from occurring.
