AFFF and other firefighting foam agents have revolutionized military and industrial firefighting. Rapid extinguishment and elimination of reignition hazards save lives. As we move from PFAS containing AFFF to PFAS-free formulations, we should understand the history and technologies involved in fighting hydrocarbon pool fires and large scale industrial fires. This short course covered the mechanics of foam, specific protocols, current testing and development, knowledge gaps, and the transition to future management.
