uestion 3:
Two members of a Queens Engine Company were discussing Steam operations when one made an incorrect comment. Indicate the incorrect statement.

A: Steam pressures in generating plants can be as high as 2,000 psi with temperatures reaching 900ºF. Steam pressures in the buried supply piping and in supplied buildings can be as high as 170 psi and temperatures as high as 350ºF.

B: Escaping high pressure steam can hurl debris at 200 mph. Anyone in the vicinity of the break is in danger of being struck by flying, high velocity debris.

Question 4:
You are working in E-100 during the 9x6 tour in the great Borough of Staten Island when you receive a ticket for a brush fire at the intersection of Tompkins ave and Hope lane. Upon arrival, you transmit a 10-75 for a large brush fire exposing several occupied private dwellings. The only tactic you carried out correctly at this incident can be found in which choice?

A: You concentrated on mobility, and avoided hooking up to a hydrant

B:Did not concentrate on mobility. Instead, you hooked up to a hydrant and protected exposures

C: In an attempt to protect exposures, you set up a water curtain using fog lines to break-up the heat waves generated by the fire

D: After protecting exposures (life not in danger), you attacked the fire from the head (front)

Explanation:
AUC 151 Brush Fire Operations
A- First protect exposures...5.4.1
B-5.4.2
C- Attempting to break-up heat waves by using a water curtain is generally ineffective. Instead, utilize streams to apply water directly onto exposures....5.4.17
D- Attack the fire from the flanks and attempt to narrow its spread, eventually heading it off...5.4.9
****If necessary to operate in front of the fire (only to protect life) sufficient charged lines must be in place and capable of protecting operating forces

Question 5:
EMS borough frequencies are available on Engine and Ladder Fire apparatus in their Borough Dispatch radio, allowing Fire units to communicate directly with EMS dispatchers. Of the following choices, which is not in accordance with Department policy?

A: When deemed necessary by the IC, these frequencies may be used to communicate critical information; they are not to be used for routine requests. Transmissions on these frequencies should be in plain speak language (do not use “10” codes, fire jargon, etc).

B: Typically, EMS units operate on one of the EMS borough frequencies. When assigned to a 10-75, EMS units will switch to and monitor EMS-CW1.

C: When transmitting on the EMS citywide frequency, include the unit calling, address of the incident including cross streets (do not use Box Number) and relevant critical information.

D:Direct communication with the EMS citywide dispatcher does not need to be repeated to the FD borough dispatcher; a single transmission on either frequency is appropriate.

Explanation:
Direct communication with the EMS citywide dispatcher DOES NOT relieve units of their responsibility to maintain communications with the FD borough dispatcher as per existing Fire Department procedures. This includes transmitting all appropriate signals, progress reports and unit status as necessary.

Question 28:
In Old Law Tenements, the infrequently used procedure of going from front to rear apartments or vice versa through the common  partition may be used as an escape route. Which choice below contains incorrect information regarding this procedure?

A: To accomplish this use the halligan, hook or axe. This is the order of preference but all can do the job.

B:Start low and punch a hole at waist level. The tool is placed in a bay with the bottom anchored against the opposite side of the partition.

C:Pull the tool towards yourself using short strokes to snap the lath off on their side. Best results are obtained when the opposite side is kept intact until near side is completely removed.

D: With the sole of your boot, kick the lath off the far side of the bay. Then use the Swim Move or Reduced Profile Maneuver to quickly move through the opening.

Explanation:
Start low and punch a hole SLIGHTLY BELOW waist level. This places the hole under possible fire stopping between studs. Work is less punishing at this level and it is easier to push the opposite side of the wall off the studs.
