During a training fire in Allenton, Wisconsin on May 18th, 2014, fire fighters successfully deployed two DSPA-5's.
The first room burned was a Kitchen, approximately 1,800cu.ft (60m3). The second room was twice the size with ¾ walls on 2 sides. One DSPA-5 was used in each room. The Kitchen was knocked down and extinguished in less than 10 seconds( 20 gallons of water for overhaul). The second room, a living room, was knocked down completely in less than 20 seconds with 80 gallons of water used for overhaul.
The demonstration was hosted by the Allenton Fire Department and the local DSPA-5 distributor Ten2 Communications. Over 10 departments actively participated in this training exercise with another 5-7 watching as spectators. Representatives from government and insurance looked on also.
