Question 6:
Two company officers discussing search tactics in private dwellings of lightweight construction were able to identify which incorrect comment?

A:The importance of conducting search operations in buildings built with traditional construction materials is less for buildings with lightweight construction.

B: Newer, lightweight buildings are more susceptible to collapse from the effects of fire and high heat; and a careful risk-reward evaluation must be conducted to ensure that firefighters are not placed at undue risk.

C: When lightweight components are exposed to fire or high heat, the IC should advise all members not to enter the fire area and the area(s) directly above; a defensive strategy should be strongly considered.

D: Searches must be conducted with consideration that interior operational time will be of limited duration. The only exception is when immediate action must be taken to address a known life hazard; in this situation, risk should be minimized by utilizing only the personnel needed to safely execute the rescue.

a Explanation:
The importance of conducting search operations in buildings built with traditional construction materials is THE SAME for buildings with lightweight construction.

B:If a pressure reducing/restricting device (PRD) is found on the standpipe outlet, it must be removed. If the PRD cannot be removed, and there is no other outlet available without a PRD, then consider a hand stretch

C: Always connect in-line pressure gauge to standpipe outlet to ensure correct nozzle pressure.

D: Controlling nozzle must always be carried attached to the folded lead length

b Explanation:
If a pressure reducing/restricting device )PRD) is found on the standpipe outlet, it SHOULD be removed. If the PRD cannot be removed, and there is no other outlet available without a PRD, then it is permissible to use an outlet with a PRD
***UPDATE- Pressure Gauges shall NOT be pre-connected to a folded length of hose.
Evolution 9 p-3

Question 12:
Forcible entry is an important part of firefighting. During a recent drill, which comment made was incorrect?

A: On the inside, the “police lock” has a metal rod extending down into a metal receptacle in the floor. This receptacle is about 2' from the door so that the rod is placed at an angle from the lock.

B: The body of a “rim lock” is attached to the inside of the door and the tongue slides into a metal receptacle, which is attached to the door frame. The cylinder extends through a hole drilled in the door and is secured on the outside by a metal ring that protrudes about 1/8 " on the public hall side of the door.

C:In no case should a panel of a door be removed under any fire condition; it will not be possible to isolate the fire area while waiting for water.

D: The use of the axe and halligan tool to force open a door is a team operation. The member holding the halligan tool is the coordinator of the action, telling the axe firefighter when to strike. To avoid injury, the axe firefighter shall never strike without being specifically instructed to do so by the member holding the halligan tool.

c Explanation:
A panel of a door should not be removed EXCEPT FOR a relatively minor fire when difficulty has been encountered using normal forcible entry procedures. If a heavy body of fire exists and a panel is broken out of the door, it will not be possible to isolate the fire area while waiting for water.

Question 14:
Safety is a top priority in Tower Ladder operations. Which choice below contains incorrect information?

A:Tower ladders are not designed to operate with outriggers and jacks down on one side only. If apparatus is not level, lower the jacks and outrigger on the high side first, then the jacks and outrigger on the low side. The preferred placement of manual pins for outriggers shall be at the lowest hole available once extended.

B: When encountering streets that are narrow and lined with parked cars, the apparatus may have to be parked so that the outrigger can be placed between parked cars. A Guide Firefighter, typically the Outside Vent Firefighter, should assist the chauffeur in positioning the apparatus so that the outriggers will clear parked cars and other obstructions such as hoselines, manholes, curbs, etc.

C: When operating with a 75' Tower Ladder, a 6' hook may be utilized as a gauge to determine if the outriggers will clear all obstructions. When the apparatus is set on an angle, ensure that the measurement is taken from that part of the outrigger that is nearest to the obstruction. A 95' Tower Ladder needs 6'8" for the outrigger to clear an obstruction.

D: If a member commences to set up a Tower Ladder apparatus for an operation and then decides to abort the operation, the member must return all outriggers and jacks to the pre-setup position.

a Explanation:
If the apparatus is not level, lower the jacks and outrigger on the low side first, followed by the jacks and outrigger on the high side until the green lights indicate that all stabilizers are properly deployed.

Question 27:
When operating as a Water Safety Unit, the only position  that operated correctly can  be found in which choice?

Question 28:
In the event the power saw is not in-service, available or an option in performing a roof cut on a nonfireproof residential building, members may have to resort to using an axe. Which choice below is incorrect?

A: Determine the location of the hole. Cut through the roof covering and remove it, exposing the sheathing. The roof sheathing is placed at right angles to the beams and generally run front to rear.

B: Remove the cut sheathing from the opening with a member on each end of the cut section working in unison to remove tar, tin and nails. Push down the ceiling of the top floor with a 6` hook.

C: The approximate location of the beam may be determined by "sounding" with the back of the axe.

D:When there is a tin covering between the asphalt covering and the roof boards, a single, accurate cut will be sufficient. This single cut will always go through the tar, tin and roof boards.

d Explanation:
When there is a tin covering between the asphalt covering and the roof boards, it will require an accurate cut to separate the tin from the roof boards. This FREQUENTLY requires TWO cutting operations. The first cut is the tar and the tin which is removed prior to cutting the roof boards. It is obvious that this will cause a slight delay in obtaining a roof opening.
A) Note: Cut through the sheathing at opposite sides of the proposed opening close to the beam to lessen the bounce of the axe and the resultant binding action when the axe goes through a springy portion of the sheathing.
