Background: New York Port Authority Police stage a fire rescue drill each month, Gasoline ins poured over a large area with a piece of meal mounted on four posts simulating the height of plane door thru which passengers would have be rescued...Time, is of course, the most important factor in rescue operation...so the fire fighters first try to beat a path thru the fire to the plane door by spraying the foam in that direction..Two trucks respond to the alert..one carries one thousand gallons of foam and the other "nurse Truck" keeps feeding the fire fighting one with an additional two thousand five hundred gallons of foam if needed ... The other parts of the plane could still be burning while passengers were taken off with the proper application of the "Mearle Foam" from the truck...
