Fireout unknown in Ohio

I photographed this truck in the early 80's at a show just north of Cincinnati Ohio in the parking lot of the Windjammers restaurant. May have been the IAFC convention. I have absolutely no info on this rig but it is interesting. Anyone have info?

I don't recognize the rig. The Ohio Fire Chiefs held several conventions at the hotel that was next door to the Windjammer so it was likely at their event.

It could have been the Ohio Fire Chiefs or the FDIC I'm not sure. Looking at the photo again seems I remember this was a company selling some sort of additive for fire suppression. Could have been they were selling Mr. Bubble to create slick fast water. The CVI decal on the side of the truck looks a little familiar as well. Wish I had kept better notes.

Leaves are on the trees, so it's late spring or summer. When FDIC was held in Cincinnati it was March. Also, all displays for FDIC were located around the Convetion Center in Cincinnati. This has to be the Ohio Chiefs.
