The airport’s fire department has a new eco-friendly foam cart that will allow testing of the foam production system without using AFFF, which contains PFAS.

PFAS-tainted AFFF firefighting foam has polluted Air Force bases around the country. PFAS is a likely carcinogen.

The department says the equipment will help cut back on wasted foam and contamination.

Officials say the cart was paid by grant funding through the State of Michigan.
