Inspiration – Brie Mathews and Mike Ferry/San Francisco Fire Department.
The San Francisco Fire Department has been conducting a pilot program to use B20 in some of its fire trucks, engines and an ambulance, with plans to go department-wide. The program takes place in the southeastern section of San Francisco, an area that consistently experiences the cityâ€™s poorest air quality. Ferryâ€™s and Mathewâ€™s idea served as a springboard for expected citywide use of B20 by the end of 2007.
