The 3,000-gpm pump and Husky™ Industrial Foam System allow for the capability to train for industrial firefighting. The 500-gallon water tank and 100-gallon foam tank were also designed for training so that students become experienced with drafting foam from outside sources. Moving to the rear of the apparatus, the lowered hosebed and hard suction storage allow for an accessible layout. The enclosed top-mount pump panel is designed to apply foam accurately with metering controls.
