In the process of mechanically ventilating subsurface structures, tactics may be employed by Utility Companies to influence the migration of sub-surface leaks by creating negative pressure between the leak and the building at risk, allowing natural gas to vent to the atmosphere in an ignition-free area. This tactic may be useful in slowing gas migration towards building basements/cellars that may be at risk and are difficult to vent and/or evacuate such as large multiple dwellings, assisted living housing, hospitals, etc. Which choice below contains incorrect information?
A:Once on scene, Utility Company personnel are responsible for mechanically ventilating outdoor, sub-surface structures. Fire Department units shall not assist in this procedure.
B: Both Con Edison Gas and National Grid have mechanical air movers that can exhaust air from sewers, manholes and subsoils via bar holes. The air movers use construction crew truck compressors to blow air through a venturi, creating a negative pressure.
C: Con Edison Gas has an intrinsically safe electric fan with a collapsible duct that can be used to exhaust air from sewers and manholes.
D:Tactics may also be employed to assist in venting by pulling air back through a subsurface structure to clear a building of natural gas so the building can be re-evaluated following evacuation. Extreme caution should be used before re-entering buildings that are in the potential blast zone.
In consultation with the Utility Company, the IC MAY deploy units to assist Utility Company personnel in mechanical ventilation of outdoor, sub-surface structures.

The Incident Commander has many things to consider at a Major Gas Emergency. Of the following choices, which is incorrect?
A: The Incident Commander should define the extent of the emergency; this is especially true for sub-surface leaks, as well as excavation accidents due to the potential for multiple leaks as a result of pipe movement.
B: Units should be deployed as necessary and may be used for, but not limited to, determining the extent of gas migration, evacuation, and/or mitigation (venting, power removal, etc.)
C: The Gas Utility Company should be contacted by the IC to define the underground infrastructure for subsurface leaks and determine any additional exposures that may be affected. This contact can be made through the Utility Company representative on the scene or by contacting the Utility Company directly from the Battalion/Division cellular phone.
D:The Utility Company’s Gas Emergency Control Center may be contacted for information as to utility runs (gas, electric and sewer) to discern where natural gas may be migrating. This may help establish priority of reconnaissance for units.
The Utility Company’s Gas Emergency Control Center may be contacted for information as to utility runs (GAS and ELECTRIC) to discern where natural gas may be migrating. This may help establish priority of reconnaissance for units. If there are indications that natural gas is migrating through the SEWER W, NYCEM or DEP can provide information as to the run of the sewers in the area. If there are indications that natural gas is migrating via subsurface infrastructure (electric or sewer lines), buildings served by those lines should be prioritized for rapid evacuation.

As soon as possible after determining a Major Gas Emergency is present, boundaries of the affected area should be established. Boundaries should be relayed to all members using recognizable physical features so that the extent of the boundaries are understood. Which choice below is not in accordance with Department policy as it pertains to rapid evacuation and the potential blast zone?
A: As soon as conditions permit, the boundary should be marked with “DANGER DO NOT ENTER” tape. The extent of the boundaries should be relayed over the Department Radio for the benefit of units responding in as well as for relay to the Utility Company.
B: Units should be made aware of the potential blast zone when reporting in to the Command Post or Staging Area. Any unit assigned to operate in or near the potential blast zone should be reminded periodically of its location and boundaries by the IC.
C: Tasks should be conducted early on and initiated under the IC, usually the first arriving Battalion Chief (BC). In accordance with the anticipated life hazard, units should be assigned to initiate the rapid evacuation of occupants from within the potential blast zone.
D:In lieu of preliminary and progress reports, the IC should relay any critical information directly to the Utility Company’s Control Center via cell phone.
In ADDITION to preliminary and progress reports, the IC should relay any critical information to the dispatcher. In ADDITION, prior to the arrival of the Utility Company on scene, the IC may contact the Utility Company’s Control Center via cell phone.

Which tactic below is incorrect when it comes to operations at major gas emergencies?
A:At these incidents, it is required that only Chief Officers be designated the Staging Area Manager; in no case shall a company officer be assigned this critical position.
B: Buildings may be evacuated, vented and ignition sources removed, depending on conditions, either due to the presence of natural gas or as a precaution. It is not uncommon for gas to migrate into several exposures; gas can travel far beneath the surface and enter some buildings while bypassing others.
C: Resources such as the Haz-Mat Battalion, Rescue Battalion, Haz-Mat Company 1, Haz-Mat Technician Units and Rescue Companies should be used to the fullest extent when necessary. These units will inform the IC as to how they can best be used and as they report in, should be apprised of conditions, objectives and strategies.
D: Members should access exposures to define the extent of gas migration. It is expected that units not used for rapid evacuation will perform additional evacuation as well as reconnaissance and metering of an affected structure’s points of entry and sewer traps
a The OFFICER at the Staging Area will be the Staging Area Manager until relieved by an assigned Chief Officer designated the Staging Area Manager. The establishment of a Staging Area is necessary to aid in command and control due to the risks and the potential of an extensive operational area.

Chief duties at Major Gas Emergencies are critical to the overall operation. Which choice below does not contain correct information?
A: The first arriving BC will be the Incident Commander and the second arriving BC will take a position as determined by the Incident Commander. The second arriving BC should be assigned as needed and may be assigned to supervise a difficult area or task, allowing the IC to focus on strategy and evaluate the overall operation.
B: Most of the work required at Major Gas Emergencies should be accomplished by task forces or strike teams whose formation and assignment are established by the IC with subject matter expert input. The second arriving BC may be positioned where concern is greatest or coordination between groups and teams is essential.
C: The IC should use the Safety Battalion to assist in defining the potential blast zone and keep all members who are not involved in direct life-saving operations out. This should continue throughout the operation as boundaries can easily change and continuous monitoring should take place outside of the potential blast zone to ensure gas does not migrate unexpectedly and adversely change the situation.
D:The Safety Battalion may be utilized to assist in planning of strategy as well as function as a liaison with Utility Companies. The Safety Battalion may work closely with other agencies to address technical issues and problems.
The HAZ-MAT BATTALION may be utilized to assist in planning of strategy as well as function as a liaison with Utility Companies. The HAZ-MAT BATTALION may work closely with other agencies to address technical issues and problems.
