Flashcards in 8. Fire Protection Deck (12):
1

Recall important considerations if FIRE WARNING test is conducted using BATTERY POWER only

All indications will be the same as with "External Power Available" EXCEPT the First Officer's MASTER WARNING light will not illuminate and the cyan PODS TEST PASS alert message on the EAD will not be displayed

**Note: After APU is started and all busses are powered, the Fire Warning test must be reaccomplished to confirm all correct indications

2

Recall indications of an ENGINE FIRE

  1. MASTER WARNING lights illuminate
  2. Aural/vocal warnings sound - "FIRE LEFT ENGINE"
  3. L/R ENG FIRE handle light(s) illuminate
  4. FUEL switch light(s) illuminate
  5. ENGINE L/R FIRE alert(s) displayed on EAD

Recall indications of an APU FIRE

  1. MASTER WARNING lights illuminate
  2. APU automatically shuts down
  3. Aural/vocal warnings sound - "APU FIRE"
  4. APU FIRE alert displayed on the EAD
  5. FIRE light on external APU ground control panel illuminates

Recall indications of CARGO SMOKE or FIRE

  1. MASTER WARNING lights Flash
  2. MASTER CAUTION lights Illuminate
  3. Aural/vocal warnings sound - "CARGO SMOKE"
  4. CARGO SMOKE FWD (AFT) level 3 alert on EAD and AIR SD
  5. "Land at Nearest Suitable Airport" – Displayed on CONSEQUENCE Page
  6. DISCH CARGO AGENT – Displayed on EAD and AIR SD
  7. AIR SD will display RED triangles
  8. AFT/FWD CARGO SMOKE AGENT DISCH Switchlight will flash "PUSH"

**Note: Approximately one minute after the first bottle has been discharged, the illuminated amber AFT/FWD CARGO SMOKE AGENT DISCH "PUSH" Switchlight will extinguish and be replaced by an amber "LOW" light indicating the first Halon bottle has discharged. A CARGO AGENT 1 LO alert will also be displayed on the EAD

**Note: Approximately six minutes later, similar alerts will direct the crew to discharge the second Halon bottle into the appropriate cargo compartment. The second bottle, however, discharges at a much slower rate and the CARGO AGENT 2 LO alert will be delayed for about 2 hours

Recall cockpit indications of a LAVATORY FIRE

  1. MASTER CAUTION lights illuminate
  2. LAVATORY SMOKE alert on EAD
  3. HI-LO chime on PA

Recall the operation of the Engines/APU LOOPS switches on the AFT Overhead Panel

Q image thumb

**Note: The fire detection system consists of two independent, heat-sensitive detector loops located in each engine and the APU. Each loop provides both fire and overheat detection

BOTH (Normal position) -- minimizes false fire warnings since both loops have to detect fire or overheat condition before activating a fire warning

A/B - Used for dispatch or continued flight with an inoperative loop. In this condition, a fire warning will occur if the selected loop detects a fire or overheat condition

FIRE TEST

Tests both A and B loops

 

AGENT 1/2 LOW

Illuminated – Respective agent has been discharged

 

FAULT TEST

(Maintenance Use Only)

 

ENG FIRE Handle

  1. Light Illuminated – Associated engine fire is detected or test in progress
  2. Pull (Fully Extended) – Shuts off associated engine FUEL and HYDRAULIC shutoff valves, trips GENERATOR off and silence AURAL/VOCAL warnings
  3. Rotate (After pulling) – Discharges respective agent into the engine

8

Recall features of the APU Fire Extinguishing Controls and Indicators

APU Ground Control Panel

Q image thumb

APU FIRE Light -

Illuminated – APU compartment fire detected

 

AGENT 1/2 LOW Light -

Illuminated – Respective agent has been discharged

 

APU SHUT OFF Switch -

NORMAL – Normal position

SHUT OFF – Shuts down APU and arms extinguishers

 

FIRE AGENT DISCHARGE 1/2 Switch

NORMAL – (Guarded) Normal position

DISCHARGE – Discharges respective agent into APU compartment

 

9

Recall features of the APU Fire Extinguishing Controls and Indicators

FWD Overhead APU Panel

Q image thumb

APU FIRE CONT Switch

NORM – Normal position

OFF & AGENT ARM – Immediately shuts down APU and arms the fire extinguishers

 

APU FIRE AGENT Switch (NO 1/NO 2)

OFF – Normal position

DISCH – Discharges selected fire agent into APU compartment

10

Recall features of the Cargo Smoke Detection and Fire Suppression Controls

Q image thumb

CARGO SMOKE FWD/AFT Switch (2)

SINGLE – Selects single smoke detection system

NORM – Selects normal dual detection system

 

AFT/FWD CARGO SMOKE AGENT DISCH Switchlight (4)

PUSH – light flashes (amber) to indicate fire/smoke is detected in cargo compartment. Pushing switchlight discharges the fire extinguishing agent and changes the light from flashing to steady. PUSH light will extinguish when the LOW light illuminates.

LOW light illuminates (amber) after the fire extinguishing agent has been discharged. PUSH light extinguishes.

 

CARGO SMOKE Test Button

Push and Hold – Tests system

** Note: The Cargo Smoke test is disabled for four minutes after establishing electrical power

11

Recall components of the ENG and APU fire extinguishing system

The engine and APU fire extinguishing system consists of two fire extinguisher agent containers and associated AGENT LOW lights

Each fire bottle has separate discharge heads and distribution lines to each engine and the APU

Recall features of the CARGO FIRE Detection system

Q image thumb

The Cargo Smoke Detection System consists of multiple photoelectric smoke detectors mounted in recessed pans in each cargo compartment ceiling

The Cargo Smoke Detection System consists of multiple photoelectric smoke detectors mounted in recessed pans in each cargo compartment ceiling

The system uses two Halon fire extinguishing agent bottles connected to both forward and aft cargo compartments

**Note: The system can suppress a fire for approximately 80 minutes

**Note: The system is designed as a dual detection system and normally requires two detector activations to trigger the alarm. However, selection of the SINGLE position, as appropriate, on the CARGO SMOKE DET SYS panel will allow only one detector to activate the alarm
