Danbury Fire brings regionalĀ Foam Trailer asset to gasoline tanker rollover in Norfolk

The Danbury Fire Department was requested to bring the regional Foam Trailer asset to help at a gasoline tanker rollover in Norfolk this weekend.  Danbury participates in numerous State and Regional response programs, as part of the Connecticut Statewide Fire-Rescue Disaster Response Plan. The Foam Trailer holds 500 gallons of foam, with others located in Winsted, Willington, Hartford, New Haven, Waterbury, Norwich, and Fairfield. The trailers are in the process of being switched to non-PFAS "green" foam, and only Danbury, Willington, and Winsted's are converted, so those three were deployed.  The gas tanker truck rolled over in the area of Beacon Road and Route 44 early Saturday morning releasing its full load of 8,200 gallons of gasoline, largely into the storm drain system and neighboring properties.  The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection also responded.  The area was closed for an extended period of time, with a detour set up.
