1. Regarding Collapse operations, a Chief Officer should be aware that which one of the following points is incorrect? (Collapse--1.2, 2.3, 4.3, 4.4, 4.6)A. Structural Collapse is a Single Command event and CIMS designates the FDNY as the Incident CommanderB. After rescue and removal of all persons involved has been completed, and stabilization of all threats to public safety has been accomplished, the scene becomes the jurisdiction of the Department of Buildings and / or NYS Department of Labor (for CDA buildings)C. At least one tower ladder shall be special called to every major collapse if none was assigned on the initial alarmD. At all explosions and major collapses, SOC units shall ensure the immediate area is monitored for the presence of biological / radiological agents.E. Explosions shall be viewed as possible dirty bomb sites until monitoring shows the area to be clear of contamination

1. DNOTE At all explosions and major collapses, SOC Units shall ensure the immediate area is monitored for the presence of radiological/chemical agents.

Utilize the following scenario to answer questions 2 - 8:You are a Battalion Chief in Battalion 12 responding to a 10-60 Code 1 for a major collapse at 325 East 117th street between 3rd and Lexington Avenue in Harlem on the uptown side of the street. On arrival, you find an explosion occurred in a 5-story MD and all five floors have sustained significant damage. Exposures 2, 2A, 2B and 4, 4A, 4B are all similar attached structures. There is minor damage to Exposure 2 and Exposure 4. There are no indications of fire. Your response ticket shows E91 E58 E53 E35 E22 E37 E80 E69 T14 L26 L43F L40 T13 RCO3 S41 are your 10-60 Code 1 first responding units and they have all arrived in the order they were assigned. There are no visible civilian rescue issues showing at this time.2. In this situation, your initial size up would indicate that which one of the following units was not properly positioned based on their order of arrival? (Collapse--5.3, 5.4, 5.5)A. Engine 91 took a hydrant on the corner of Third Avenue, and Engine 58 took a hydrant on corner of Lexington Avenue. Both units were located outside of 117 street.B. Engine 53 and Engine 35 both took hydrants on East 118 street between Third and Lexington AvenuesC. Ladder 14 was placed directly in front of the collapsed building, Ladder 26 was placed in front of Exposure 2 and Ladder 13 was placed in front of Exposure 4D. Engine 37 was positioned to seal off the street at 117 street and Third Avenue; Engine 69 was positioned to seal off the street at 117 street and Lexington AvenueE. Rescue 3 and Squad 41 placed their apparatus near Exposures 4A and 4B

2. C• Aerial ladders should be kept away from the front of the building in a secondary staging area unless needed for specific rescue purposes.

There are no visible civilian rescue issues showing at this time.3. How many of the following actions would be correct for the first arriving Chief, Battalion 12, to consider at this incident? (Collapse--6.1)1. He should establish a command channel2. He assigned E22’s officer to be the Staging Area Manager until replaced by a Chief3. He ensured the ICP was located far away from the immediate vicinity of the incident site 4. He set up the Battalion Tent as an indicator of the ICPA. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4

3. B6.1Take command at the sceneAnnounce arrival and evaluate the ICP established by the initial IC. Ensure the ICP is located at or in the immediate vicinity of the incident site, in an area outside of the operations site and collapse zone. Keep in mind there are likely to be multiple responding agencies whose ranking representatives need to be accommodated at the ICP. The ICP must be clearly visible from the collapsed structure and accessible to incoming units. On arrival of the Division, consider use of the Division tent. Establishment of a Command Channel (Channel 2) is essential for effective communications at large incidents.6.2Staging AreaThe initial IC establishes a staging area. Reevaluate the location and assign a company officer to be the Staging Area Manager until replaced by a Battalion Chief. Transmit a preliminary report regarding the location of the ICP and the staging area. The Dispatcher can assist in identifying a staging area.

There are no visible civilian rescue issues showing at this time.5. Regarding the 10-60 Code 1 response, you would be correct to think? (Collapse— 8.1, 8.7)A. Any additional resources above the 10-60 Code 1, will then require a Staging Area be set upB. A Staging Area Manager always responds with the Field Communications UnitC. An Air Recon Chief is assigned on either a 10-60 or a 10-60 Code 1D. You will get two Rescue Task Forces (RTFs) on the 10-60 Code 1

5. DWhen staffed, the Staging Area Manager responds with the Field Communication Unit. Otherwise, the Dispatcher will assign a BC as the Staging Area Manager for any request for resources above the initial 10-60 signal.• Requests from the IC for additional resources above a 10-60 will require the establishment of a Staging Area. The Staging Area Manager (if staffed) responds with the Field Communications Unit. Otherwise, an additional Battalion Chief will be assigned and designated as the Staging Area Manager.• On the transmission of a 10-60 Code 1, the appropriate Battalion Chief shall be designated Air Recon Chief and shall respond in accordance with Department policy and procedures.

9. D1 Long Blast (3 seconds) Cease Operations/All Quiet3 short blasts (1 second each) Evacuate the area1 long and 1 short blast Resume Operations

10

10. At a collapse incident where victim removal requires tunneling, trenching, shoring or cutting of structural members, which units are trained in “Collapse Rescue” operations and may be assigned to such activities? (Collapse—10.1)A. Rescue companies onlyB. Squad companies onlyC. Rescue and Squad CompaniesD. Rescue, Squad, and SOC Support Ladder Companies

10. CRescue CompaniesRescue Company members are trained in Collapse Rescue Operations.• Due to the weight of their equipment, access to the collapse site for at least the first arriving Rescue as well as at least one Collapse Rescue Unit must be ensured.• Rescue Companies will perform any victim removal activity that involves tunneling, trenching, shoring or cutting of structural members.• Two Rescue Companies are assigned to all major collapses.• At least one Rescue Company should be deployed at each buried victim location.• If dangerous void entries or tunneling operations are to be made, a third Rescue Company should be relocated to quarters near the incident or assigned to the staging area for rapid intervention of members if a secondary collapse occurs.10.1.2Squad CompaniesSquad Company members are trained in Collapse Rescue Operations.• Their apparatus does not carry all the necessary equipment to perform tunneling, trenching, or shoring, but they are trained to use equipment found on Rescue apparatus, Collapse Rescue Units, and in Collapse PODs.• At large scale incidents with multiple buried victims, the IC may assign a Squad Company to sites where there is no Rescue Company available.

11

11. A SOC Support Ladder may be used as a second FAST Unit in the Search and Rescue Branch. A. Agree or D. Disagree?

11. ASpecial Operations Support Ladder CompaniesMembers are trained in collapse operations, void access and shoring techniques.• Assist Rescue Companies in tunneling and victim removal.• Can act as a second FAST Unit, working underneath the Search and Rescue Branch.

12

12. What stage(s) of a collapse rescue operation can be conducted simultaneously if conditions and personnel permit? (Collapse—11.3, 11.4)1. Reconnaissance2. Accounting for and removal of surface victims3. Search of the voids4. Selected debris removal and tunneling5. General debris removalA. 1, 2 only B. 2, 3 onlyC. 1, 2, 3 onlyD. 1, 2, 3, 4

12. CVictims may be found in various degrees of entanglement. After completing the reconnaissance phase, or simultaneously, if conditions and personnel permit, start the removal of victims who are lightly pinned. In some cases, they won't require much assistance..• Individual voids may be found in any type of collapse. They result from spaces formed by strong objects that prevent a collapse into that particular section. They are difficult to locate, for they occur at random depending on the layout of partitions and furniture. Searching void spaces should be done immediately after the surface victims have been removed, or simultaneously if sufficient personnel are available.

13

13. Regarding the use of shoring at collapse operations, it would be incorrect to state that? (Collapse—11.5)A. First arriving units may be forced to perform emergency shoringB. Cutting of load bearing members should only be performed by Rescue or Squad companiesC. Once a Rescue Company is on-scene, the installation of additional shoring should generally be left to them, supported by Squad Companies and SOC Support LaddersD. Buildings with no civilian life hazard will never be shored by the FDNY

13. D• Buildings in which there is no civilian life hazard will only be shored if the shoring can be safely installed at minimal risk to members, and where there is a substantial property risk that can be safeguarded by the shoring.

14

14. Regarding Selected Debris Removal and General Debris Removal in the Collapse Rescue Operation, it would be incorrect to state? (Collapse—11.6, 11.13.2, 12.1)A. Heavy demolition equipment is forbidden during the General Debris Removal stageB. During selected debris removal, victim removal requiring tunneling, trenching, or cuttingthrough supporting members should only be performed by collapsed trained members of SOCC. The FDNY will remain at the collapse site until the debris removal phase is complete or until the IC is reasonably certain all victims have been removedD. An FDNY watchline shall be maintained as long as there are personnel operating in the debris pile for search or investigative purposes

14. AHeavy demolition equipment (cranes, bulldozers, etc.) is forbidden during the Selected Debris Removal stage. Although a manual operation is very time consuming, it is necessary if survivors are expected. Extreme caution must be exercised when operating tools to avoid injuring trapped victims.

15

15. Rescue paramedics must be given access to a patient as soon as there is access to an exposed arm, leg, or even the neck in order to treat for crush syndrome or other life-threatening injuries by establishing an IV. This should be done when a victim appears to have suffered serious injuries or has been pinned for more than? (Collapse—11.6, 11.8.3)A. 30 minutes B. 45 minutes C. 60 minutes D. 90 minutes

15. C• If the victim has been pinned for more than one hour or appears to have suffered serious injuries, a Rescue Paramedic must be given access to the patient as soon as there is access, in order to treat for crush syndrome or other life threatening injuries.

16

16. The Search Assessment Marking System assists the FDNY in searches of large areas, very large buildings, multiple buildings or large debris piles at collapse sites. Regarding this system, it would be incorrect to state? (Collapse Add 2—1.5, 1.6)A. Do not paint a square box around the markingB. Markings should be 2’ x 2’, forming the letter “X” when completed, using lime yellowcolored reflective spray paintC. As new voids become accessible, new markings should be made and old markings labeled with paint “OLD”D. Ladder 14 has entered and is still searching is indicated by: LAD /E. Ladder 14 has exited the structure or area is indicated by: LAD 14 X

16. CNew markings should be made and old markings crossed out.

17

17. Regarding the quadrants (Top, Right, Bottom, Left) which point is inaccurate? (Add 2Pg 3) XA. The top quadrant should indicate the military time (1400 hours) and date (11/01/02) the company/team left the structure or areaB. The right quadrant should indicate any personal hazards (rats) affecting units or teamsC. The bottom quadrant should indicate the number of live and / or expired victims2-Live3-DeadD. In the bottom quadrant, indicate “None” if there are no victims

17. D4-6 Bottom Quadrant: Number of live and/or expired victims still inside the structure/area. '0' = No Victims

18

18. When utilizing the victim location marking system, a large V (for victim) is painted as drawn below. Which point(s) would be correct about using this marking? (Collapse Add 2 5.2-- 5.4) VA. The V should be painted 2’ high near the location of a known or potential victimB. Add an arrow above the V pointing towards the victim’s location if their location is not clearly visible or if not immediately nearbyC. Paint a circle around the V when the victim is confirmed alive - either visually, vocally or by hearing sounds that indicate a high probability the victim is aliveD. Paint a horizontal line through the middle of the V when the victim is confirmed deceasedE. Paint a vertical line through the confirmed victim mark after the victim(s) have been removed from the specific location of the marking

18. A, D, E5-2 A large V , (for Victim) approximately 2' in height is painted near the location of a known or potential victim. An arrow may need to be added next to the V pointing towards the victim's location if not clearly visible or if not immediately nearby.5-3 A circle is painted around the "V" when the location of a potential victim has been confirmed, either visually, vocally or by hearing sounds that would indicate a high probability of a victim.5-4 Paint a horizontal line through the middle of the V when the victim is confirmed deceased.5-5 A vertical line is painted through the confirmed victim mark after the victim/s have been removed from the specific location identified by the marking. This marking should not be taken to mean the secondary search is complete, rather it means that all victims that have previously been located have been removed. Given that these markings will be used on piles of debris in a heavily collapsed structure, a secondary search of that area will not be complete until all debris in the area is removed and examined. Continuous examination of the debris will be required as further demolition progresses.

19

19. The painting of a vertical line through the confirmed victim mark after the victim(s) have been removed from the specific location of the marking is done to indicate to other members that all secondary searches are complete at that location or sector. (Collapse Add 2 5.5)A Agree or D Disagree

19. D5-5 A vertical line is painted through the confirmed victim mark after the victim/s have been removed from the specific location identified by the marking. This marking should not be taken to mean the secondary search is complete, rather it means that all victims that have previously been located have been removed. Given that these markings will be used on piles of debris in a heavily collapsed structure, a secondary search of that area will not be complete until all debris in the area is removed and examined. Continuous examination of the debris will be required as further demolition progresses.

20

20. Regarding the use of the Con Ed Vacuum Truck at collapse and trench operations, it would be incorrect to state that the Vacuum Truck? (Add 4—1, 3, 4)A. Has a capacity of 10 cubic yardsB. Can move both wet and dry material including dirt, sand, grain, store stock, cans, bottles and building debrisC. Has a high-pressure water system rated at 700 psi that can break up hardened materialD. Responds automatically on trench rescue operations, a 10-60 and a 10-60 Code 1E. Requires the SOC Compressor unit to also respond when the Vacuum Truck is requested, as the SOC Compressor Unit carries extension hoses and other equipment to supplement the vacuum truck

20. D3. RESPONSE• 10-60 Code 1• Trench rescue operations• As requested by the Incident CommanderIncident Commanders must make early recognition of the need and request response of the vacuum truck via the borough dispatcher.

21

21. A Battalion Chief is supervising the use of the Con Ed Vacuum Truck at a collapse operation. In this situation, it would be incorrect for the Chief to know that? (Collapse—Add 4--2)A. Con Ed employees will operate the vacuum truck if the area is safeB. A FDNY HT equipped member shall be positioned with the Con Ed employee at all timesC. SOC members are trained to operate this equipment if the work area is too hazardous for Con Ed employeesD. Con Ed employees will operate the suction hose at the extrication site only if the area is safe

21. DAccess lanes must be established at the incident to facilitate easy response and positioning of the vacuum tuck. Con Edison employees shall operate the vacuum truck if the work area is safe. An FDNY HT equipped member shall be positioned with the Con Edison employee at all times. This will facilitate communication between the truck operator and members working at the extrication site. SOC members have also been trained to operate this equipment if the work area is determined to be hazardous for Con Edison Employees. FDNY members will operate the suction hose at the extrication site.

1. You are a Battalion Chief working in Battalion 9 at 2100 hours, when a Class E alarm for a High-Rise Office building is received and the housewatch announces that Engine 54 and Battalion 9 respond. Ladder 4 has just called “CHOW” as you watch Engine 54 board their apparatus and respond with a regularly assigned Captain. In this situation, it would be correct for you to think that? (ABC 5-94—2.3, 3.2, 3.3, 3.5, 3.6)A. You have the discretion to either respond or monitor the alarm, even if there is a CIDS message indicating a minimum response of 3 Engines, 2 Ladders and a BCB. If you decide to monitor the alarm, the dispatcher shall be notifiedC. If no preliminary report is received from Engine 54 within 10 minutes, you must then respondD. If Engine 54 transmits a 10-35, Battalion 9 will be responsible for the NYFIRS reportE. While monitoring the alarm, if another alarm is received requiring a structural response, where you are the nearest available Battalion Chief, you will be directed by the dispatcher to respond to that subsequent alarm

1. D2.3Class E alarms from certain occupancies require a minimum response of 3 Engines, 2 Ladders and a Battalion Chief. This response will be indicated in the CIDS message when a Class E alarm is received for these occupancies.3.3 If the Battalion Chief responds to the E or J alarm, the dispatcher shall be notified.3.5If the preliminary report from the assigned Engine or Ladder Company is not received in a reasonable time frame (5-10 minutes), Chief Officers monitoring the radio shall contact the dispatcher and request a preliminary report. When the report from the Engine or Ladder Company indicates that the alarm is for a 10-35 or 10-92 and such signal is transmitted, the Battalion Chief will return to service.3.7If a subsequent alarm is received while the Battalion Chief is monitoring a Class E or J alarm, the Battalion shall NOT be directed to respond unless:

23

2. A Battalion Chief is working on a day tour in Battalion 9 when a Class J alarm is received for a hotel and Battalion 9 and Engine 54 are assigned to respond. Because there is a new Lieutenant from Division 13 working in Engine 54, the BC decides to respond. In this situation, the BC should know all of the following are correct except? (ABC-5-94 - 1.3 Add 1—3, 4, 5)A. Because the BC is responding to the alarm, the dispatcher should be notifiedB. Class J alarms may be monitored by a Battalion Chief only from 0700-1900 hoursC. Engine 54 should enter the building with forcible entry tools, but no rolled up lengthsD. If the alarm does reset, the Engine Officer should remain approximately 2-3 minutes to assure that the reset holdsE. If the alarm panel does not reset or is again activated, the box should be transmitted.

2. E1.3The same response policy described in section 1.2 shall be assigned to hotel occupancies (Class J Alarms) from 0700 hours through 1900 hours citywide. From 1900 to 0700 hours, units will be assigned to Class ”J” alarms as per box assignments.3.Members entering the building shall be equipped with their personal protective equipment and SCBA. Ladder companies shall bring their usual compliment of tools. Engine companies shall bring forcible entry tools into lobby. At this time no rolled up lengths of hose will be required.4.Officer shall make contact with building personnel; inquire as to the alarm source and direct building personnel to reset the alarm system. If the alarm panel does reset, the officer shall remain approximately two to three minutes to assure that the reset holds.5.If the alarm panel does not reset or is again activated, the officer must view the panel for alarm location and verify the floor from which alarm is transmitted.

24

3. A BC is operating at an alarm at 0400 hours where he used 2 engines and two ladders for a small fire. The BC deems the incident to be a “Noteworthy” incident. In this situation, he should know that he is responsible to notify by cell phone the _________ of all available particulars of the incident? (ABC 3-96 Sect 3) A. Deputy ChiefB. Borough CommanderC. On duty Command Chief through FDOCD. OEM through FDOC

3. C3. Chief Officers, when operating as the IC at NOTEWORTHY INCIDENTS, are personally responsible for notifying or designating a knowledgeable subordinate to notify the on-duty Command Chief of all available particulars of the incident. This notification shall be made through the Fire Department Operations Center (FDOC) at 718-999-7900 as soon as an incident is determined to be NOTEWORTHY.

25

4. A Battalion Chief responding to an alarm reporting a structural fire should know that he has the discretion to distribute a brand new “Battalion Smoke Detector” if units operate at an incident where there was no smoke alarm present and the incident was a? (Indicate all the correct choices) (ABC 6-09 1.1, 2.1)A. 10-75, where there was a 3-year old child in the occupancyB. 10-26, where there was a 65-year old lady in the occupancyC. 10-32, where there was a 9-year old child in the occupancyD. 10-33, where there was a recent immigrant in the occupancy

4. B, D1.1The major goal of the FDNY fire safety education program is to further reduce the annual death toll from residential fires in New York City. A major part of the strategy to attain this goal is the distribution of smoke alarms and batteries, particularly to the high-risk special populations living in New York City. The high-risk groups are children, older adults and recent immigrants.2.1Each Battalion will be supplied with ten (10) First Alert Model SA710CN Photoelectric Smoke Alarms to be carried in the Battalion vehicle.
