Air Force technology helps put out fires faster
A UHP P-19 truck extinguishes a fire during testing July 15 at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla. Air Force Research Laboratory scientists developed ultra high pressure firefighting technology that yields greater fire fighting capability from smaller, light-weight vehicles. Starting in fiscal 2008, these new trucks can be deployed in sets of two on a C-130 Hercules, whereas the former fire trucks could only be carried one at a time aboard the aircraft.
