In the January issue of Fire-Rescue there's an excellent article on how a new CAFS engine was designed. Brunacini was quoted as saying "If you buy a fire truck without a compressed air foam system (CAFS), it's obsolete.". Does anyone know where this original article or quote could be located? Trying to spec out a CAFS engine and getting lots of resistance from apparatus vendors who keep saying "it's still an untested, expensive bell and whistle".
Anyone have sample specs for commercial chassis CAFS they might be willing to share?

My company is very interested in working you on a CAFS pumper. CAFS is one of our strenghts and the technology and information is only getting better.
We have a wide range of product and CAFS systems.
We currently do not have a dealer in you area, but we can work with you factory direct.
Alot of manufactures reps still do not understand the benefits of having a compressed air foam system. If properly installed and designed it will be easy to operate and maintain.
Our companies CAFS system is avaliable to all truck builders in our industry.
E-mail me for more information.
