State Gives 25K In Grants to Airports For Non-PFAS Fire Foam
The state of Michigan has partnered with all 19 commercial airports in the state to deploy rescue and firefighting testing equipment that eliminates a potential source of PFAS.
Under federal regulations, these airports are required to test their equipment, including firefighting foam systems, to ensure fires can be extinguished quickly.
So, to help reduce the chances of PFAS-containing foam contaminating the environment, a grant was given to the airports.
It provides airports with nearly $25,000 each to acquire environmentally conscious firefighting foam testing devices.
More than half of the commercial airports in Michigan are using this equipment as of today.
