The Changing Nature of Fire-Fighting Foams - Guidance Booklet

Understanding the risk posed by PFAS, May 2021

Year: 2021

Fires present risk to life and damage to property and the control of fires is typically achieved through the use of an extinguishing agent to remove heat or oxygen, or both, from the fire triangle: fuel, heat, oxygen. Water is the most commonly used agent, but other materials which “smother” the fire are also employed (e.g. inerting gases or the application of foam).

IE-GHG203-11125-1 Amazon Data Services Ireland Limited

Year: 2021

A Greenhouse Gas Emissions Permit authorises the holder to undertake named activities resulting in emissions of carbon dioxide from the listed emission points. It also contains requirements that must be met in respect of such emissions, including monitoring and reporting requirements. Allowances for emissions to air of greenhouse gases are allocated through the National Allocation Plan.

Monitoring for per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and brominated flame retardants (BFRs) at fire training sites cover

Monitoring for per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and brominated flame retardants (BFRs) at fire training sites

Year: 2021

Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large group of man-made chemicals widely used in industrial and consumer products due to their water and oil resistance, chemical and heat stability, friction reduction and surfactant properties. They can be found in many everyday products, including outdoor clothing and also in fire-fighting foams but can have harmful effects on human health and the environment.
