On NYCFIREWIRE it stated that Car 11 Frank responded...not sure who that is ...maybe the Foam Coordinator (even though it was Purple K not foam)?

Foam Coordinator is a BC ....not entirely sure of his duties when there is no Foam Response but i am sure he has other projects assigned whether Foam related or not.

Considering his response to this incident, perhaps he's also the Purple-K coordinator?  Is the Foam Coordinator slot manned 24/7?

As far as i know the position is not manned 24/7....i think he works regular hours then is on call for major Foam related stuff.

Here in Pennsylvania our legislature passed a law within the past 10 years that is a statewide mutual aid agree.  Unless you pro-actively notify the state that you want to opt out, you automatically have a "mutual aid agreement" with every other public safety agency in the state.  It makes thing very simple.

Out of state responses are not covered so they are not as smooth.  Baltimore wanted PA companies to respond during riots - the governor approved a temporary expansion to add the city of baltimore for any agency that didnt have a direct mutual aid agreement with Balto. FD.
