MERC Competion

19 December 2016

In mid-November 2016 Fire Protection Technologies attended and contributed as a sponsor at the MERC (Mining Emergency Rescue Competition) in Langley Park Perth Western Australia.

The Competition allowed us the opportunity to not only support the local mining and rescue community but offered us the opportunity to demonstrate the effectiveness of Compressed Air Foam Systems and Fluorine Free Foam (F3) directly to the front line personal and mining rescue facilitators. It was also a learning experience for attending staff to understand the concerns and critical applications being faced in the field. Overall, the show was considered a success and a step in the right direction to assist industry in understanding the application of environmentally friendly foams and in particular, Compressed Air Foam systems
