New funnel system drastically reduces cost in fire suppression test at Edwards

Red plastic funnels were affixed to ten fire suppression foam dispensers in Hangar 1820’s west side to conduct a test of the fire suppression system Jan. 8. Base civil engineers and the Edwards Air Force Base Fire Department used water to test the dispensers, which funneled down to a makeshift containment pool. Using this new funnel test system saved the base $79,750 according to the testers. (U.S. Air Force photo by Kenji Thuloweit)
