Many of you know that along with FireCritic.com and some other web sites, I was the creator of VAFireNews.com.

Vehicle Fires…The Right Way from Weatherford, Texas and the Wrong Way from South Boston, Virginia

vafirenews1

Here is another video where I ask you to find something wrong. The operation seems to run pretty well. I admit I have never used CAFS and don't have a clue about the pros and cons. My department does not use it and probably never will. The video is from Weatherford,TX Fire Department. Apparently it is tires burning in the bed of the truck.After the video...take a scroll down a little further for a picture of a Fire Chief putting out a fire. Notice anything different from the video to the picture? These are obviously two different operations from two different sides of the U.S.
