Abstract
This report tries to introduce a new way to use high expansion foam in case of a fire, namely as a protection for property. The use of high expansion foam as a tool to extinguish a fire in a building is widely known in Sweden. But the tool is not the first action taken by the fire service and the knowledge of how to use high expansion foam is not very high.

Information on how Swedish rescue service personnel feel about using this tool where analyzed by conducting a survey among commanders within Swedish rescue service.

Results from three experiments prove that high expansion foam is a good tool for protecting property from hot gases produced by a fire and from heat radiation. Although the high expansion foam easily is destroyed by... (More)
