Question 4:
Two members of a busy Brooklyn Engine made a number of comments regarding the Digital In-line Gauge during drill. Which comment made was incorrect?

A: The gauge is not to be pre-connected to a folded length of hose.

B: The goal is to obtain a residual pressure (nozzle open, water flowing) of approximately 70 PSI for a 3 length stretch or 80 PSI for a 4 length stretch with a flow of 225-250 GPM.

C: Suspect kinks if the pressure reading on the gauge is normal or higher and the flow is reduced below normal. Suspect a burst length if the pressure reading is normal or lower and the flow is increased above normal.

D:If the Digital In-Line Gauge fails to display upon initial start-up, make another attempt to turn the gauge on. If this attempt fails, the Control Firefighter shall notify the officer. The officer must immediately transmit an “Urgent” and back the nozzle team out to a safe area.

D Explanation:
If the Digital In-Line Gauge fails to display upon initial start-up, make another attempt to turn the gauge on. If this attempt fails, the Control Firefighter shall verify with their officer that the nozzle team is receiving proper pressure and flow. Since the Digital In-Line Gauge does not regulate water flow, hoseline operations can continue without the display functioning properly. The officer must monitor water pressure and flow and communicate the need for any adjustments to the Control Firefighter.

Question 6:
As the first arriving aerial ladder at a fire on the 3rd floor of a 4-story Brownstone, the LCC would be correct to follow all of the actions below except?

A: Position and prepare the apparatus for complete coverage. When unable to complete this assignment, notify the IC.

B: If the Roof Firefighter indicates no need for rescue, place the aerial ladder to the top floor for VEIS.

C:Generally, the window over the main entrance opens into one small room (on all upper floors). The other two windows open into a large room which originally, and in many cases still is, connected railroad fashion to other rooms deeper in the building. It is best to select the window over the main entrance for VEIS, due to the limited means of escape for occupants.

D: LCC entry into the top floor via aerial may be negated until the fire has been darkened down. The LCC should wait until the possibility of lapping fire has been eliminated, then vent all windows on the top floor in accordance with established ventilation procedures. Entry into the top floor via aerial may then be attempted, when teamed up with another available member, if the second arriving ladder company has not already “made” the top floor via the interior.

C Explanation:
Generally, the window over the main entrance opens into one small room (on all upper floors). The other two windows open into a large room which originally, and in many cases still is, connected railroad fashion to other rooms deeper in the building. It is best to select one of these windows for VEIS, instead of the window over the main entrance.

Question 30:
All of the following are advantages of aluminum portable ladders except in which choice?

A: The aluminum will not weaken with age. It has a long life expectancy.

B: These ladders will dent but will not chip or crack when subjected to severe impact, nor will they fail suddenly because of overloads. They will bend but not break.

C: They are generally lighter in weight and stronger than wood ladders.

D:They are resistant to excessive heat exposure at a fire and will not lose strength, even under high heat.

D Explanation:
Aluminum ladders conduct heat very rapidly. If an aluminum ladder has been subjected to excessive heat exposure at a fire, even for a brief period, it may have lost its heat treatment. This may affect its load carrying capacity, even though the metal shows no signs of any change. A discoloration may indicate a loss of structural strength.
