Re: Thanks Nascar.

1st, Halon works by displacing oxygen. It would be ineffective in an open area.

2nd, you are absolutely correct to question the A) lack of appropriate equipment and B) tardiness in applying the available equipment.

answer: proper firefighting equipment and personnel cost $$$$. France owns the track. France is a cheapskate.

Thanks for answering the question about halon, I know that when I worked as aerospace med nurse, we treated firefighters/ pilots with halon exposure due to cockpit fires, I wasn't sure who to ask that question to. But I do know that foam trucks respond for every IFE, in case of a fuel fire.
I would rather be hated for who Iam the Loved for What Iam not
