23

Upon arrival, the aerial should position to:

Raise the aerial to the fire floor near the fire

24

2. Traffic cones

3. PPV Fan

29

Who should direct and assist vehicles leaving the parking structure?

The aerial firefighters

30

If the the 2nd pumping apparatus is needed to deploy a backup line, they should report to the fire floor with:

Either a:

1. Rackline

2. Bundle

3. Standpipe hose

31

The batt chief car may be used to:

Enter the parking garage for fire location and size-up

32

When there is a working fire in an underground parking garage, the first-pumping apparatus driver should:
