Idea for Firefighting Mentorship Project
Hey, I'm a Junior in High School, and I'm part of this class called ISM (Independent Study Mentorship) in which I'm mentored by someone in the career field of my choice for a Semester, then at the end of the semester we have to Present a project that shows what we learned over those 3.5 months. I had an idea for a project but I wasn't sure if it was good, here it is:
Design a Portable Foam Eductor system that has a Remote control system where if the user needed to, they could turn off the Eductor (plain water would be flowing through the Eductor and hose) for a period of time, and then they could remotely turn the Eductor on again. This would be used in the situation where there was a Hydrocarbon fire in one area, and in another area there was a normal fire and you didn't want to waste the foam or get the foam where it doesn't need to be.
Please respond and tell me what you think, Thanks!

We have a manual set-up of what you are describing on our brush truck. If you are good with stuff like that it sounds like a good idea.
