House Concurrent Resolution 20
152nd General Assembly (Present)
No further action required by the General Assembly
REQUESTING THE DELAWARE STATE FIRE SCHOOL TO DEVELOP A PROGRAM FOR THE DISPOSAL OF AQUEOUS FILM FORMING FOAM CURRENTLY IN THE POSSESSION OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE FIRE COMPANIES AND DEPARTMENTS.
This Concurrent Resolution requests the Delaware State Fire School propose a plan for the safe disposal of aqueous film forming foam (AFFF), due to the per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) they contain from Delaware Fire Departments and companies. The Delaware State Fire School is to provide a report to the President Pro Tempore, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Office of the Controller General, and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget. The report is also to include the cost of disposal and the cost to obtain safe, viable, alternatives. The concept would be to fund this disposal foam and remove it from the Delaware Fire Service by a one-time exchange of this foam voluntarily and allowing the Fire Service the opportunity to replace AFFF with a new compliant supply at no cost to them.
