I noticed in the picture caption that the Airport FRS had foamed the runway. I remember seeing this in films about aircraft disasters when I was younger, but how common is it?

No point in foaming the runway if you are just going to cause the airplane to run off the end into the apprach lights.
Its better to wait to see if you gave a fuel leak and then foam the puddle to keep it from lighting off.
