THUNDERSTORM W813A 1×3 AR-AFFF (Alcohol-Resistant Aqueous Film-Forming Foam) Concentrate from Williams Fire & Hazard Control delivers exceptional firefighting performance, continuing the renowned heritage of THUNDERSTORM products. THUNDERSTORM W813A Concentrate combines fluoro- and hydrocarbon-surfactant technology to provide superior fire and vapor suppression for Class B, polar solvent and hydrocarbon fuel fires. This synthetic foam concentrate is intended for forceful or gentle firefighting applications at 1% solution on hydrocarbon fuels and gentle firefighting applications at 3% solution on polar solvent fuels in fresh, salt, or hard water. Applications include:
The concentrate is approved, listed, qualified under, or meets the requirements of the following specifications and standards: UL-162, ULC S564, EN 1568:2008, Parts 3, 4
In addition, THUNDERSTORM W813A qualifies as a C-6 Purity Compliant foam under the requirements of the Queensland Department of Environmental and Heritage Protection’s Policy on the Environmental Management of Firefighting Foam. Click here for details.
In response to industrial fires and other hazardous mitigation operations, large volumes of water are a critical resource. When responding to large scale industrial fires in areas where the water supply is substantially below the pump level, at great distances from response effort or where large tidal swings occur, the DEPENDAPOWER Hydraulic Submersible Pumps are an ideal tool.
Designed to address the limitations of conventional draft pumps, the Hydraulic Submersible Pumps can access open water sources as far as 100 ft (30.5 m) below the pump level, at distances up to 200 ft (61 m) away. These pumps are also suited for dewatering flood zones, during relief operations.
On November 11, 2014 Williams Fire & Hazard Control (Tyco Fire Protection Products) volunteered to test the outcome of standard firefighting techniques on a controlled burn of Bakken Crude in the presence of Regulatory and Safety professionals representing a cross section of America’s Rail, Government (DOTD) and Oil & Gas sectors. See how Williams’ Thunderstorm C6 Foam agent effectively extinguished the Bakken Crude fires using standard firefighting techniques.

Williams Fire & Hazard Control offers Open Enrollment classes with subjects ranging from Pump Operations and Fire Ground logistics to Tactical Studies such as the Bulk Storage Tank Firefighting.
Course schedule is as follows ...
Leveraging Williams’ 35-year experience, this course offers students an inside look at what it takes from a logistics prospective to manage an event, both Macro and Micro incident. The course goes into incident planning, response, and the necessary considerations given to the interdependent components of response operations. Students will receive a mixture of lecture and table top exercises to ensure that they have a good grasp of the concept.
The pump operations course is designed to provide the pump operator the information necessary to accurately and safely operate a fire pump, portable or apparatus. This course is eight hours and will be a combination of class room and field exercise. Classroom topics include pump maintenance, operation and hydraulics. Field exercises cover basic pump operations, drafting operations, relay pumping, and other water supply activities.
Leveraging the 35 years of the Williams Fire and Hazard control experience, this course is designed to provide emergency responders with the information necessary to safely and effectively manage an event involving a storage tank and associated equipment emergency. During the course we will provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to safely and effectively resolve emergencies that involve a variety of products to include liquid bulk-storage structures found at any location where flammable liquids are stored in bulk. This will be achieved through a mix of class room lecture and field exercise.

Gorilla - 500 Lb PKW Dry Chemical Vessel
This package offers 500 lbs of dry chemical to sustain both ground and monitor based attacks — perfect for rollover events, terminal response, or any other three-dimensional scenario.
Center Shot / Flex Nozzle
Williams' nozzle design is intended to maximize reach and foam application for various scenarios.
Fire field logistics are ranked nearly as high as equipment on hand and personnel available when facing industrial responses. Large fires require large volumes of water, which sometimes require multiple large diameter water supply hoses. The most convenient, reliable, and safest means of distributing large volumes of water over an entire facility is by constructing underground water delivery systems with above ground hydrant manifolds. These hydrant manifolds are then used in conjunction with large diameter water supply hose to supply the necessary water to pumps, fire nozzles, and foam proportioning equipment.
• By more efficiently supplying water, swivel hydrants could reduce the number of necessary hydrant locations by as much as 50% (depending on hydrant layout and size)
