Question 6:
Common features found in Brownstone buildings are correctly indicated in all choices below except?

A: There are limited means of venting the cellar. The most that can be expected are a couple of very small windows at ground level in the rear, an opening under a grating near the first floor (basement) vestibule, and possibly a coal chute.

B:In flat roof buildings, the cockloft space between the top floor ceiling and the roof is approximately 4' to 6' in height and the roof is pitched toward the rear of the building.

C: Rear extensions may have been added on the first floor. In some cases these extensions may be two or three stories in height, and 10 to 20 feet in depth; they will have their own cockloft.

D: In many buildings, when they were converted to Multiple Dwellings, fire escapes were added or sprinklers were installed in the interior halls in lieu of secondary means of egress. Sprinkler lines were further extended into individual rooms when buildings were converted to Rooming Houses. The presence of these sprinklers may indicate the absence of a fire escape; most Brownstones, however, do not have fire escapes.

b Explanation:
In flat roof buildings, the cockloft space between the top floor ceiling and the roof is approximately 2' to 3' in height and the roof is pitched toward the rear of the building.

Question 30:
Pre-control overhaul may be accomplished by the first arriving ladder company at a nonfireproof tenement fire. Which tactic is incorrect regarding this form of overhaul?

A: After the fire has been knocked down it is the responsibility of the first ladder company to arrive to determine if the fire is extending and where it is extending. This information should be transmitted to the Incident Commander and the ladder company on the floor above.

B: The ceiling should be opened first by starting at a point where the fire was most intense and working towards a clean area of ceiling space. The ceiling light fixture area should be pulled and examined.

C: If a boxed out protrusion on a wall contains a steel column and was involved in fire, then the entire length of this void will have to be examined. Particularly its highest point, the cockloft, will have to be inspected.

D:The flooring in the fire area must be checked. If the flooring is charred, the chances of extension to the floor below are remote due to the presence of subflooring found in all nonfireproof tenements.

d Explanation:
The flooring in the fire area must be checked. If the flooring is charred, the ceiling below should be examined for fire extension. NOTE: There may be no subflooring in O.L.T.’s. This may allow fire to extend rapidly up and down.
