When operating at a taxpayer fire, company officers need to be well- versed in wood and steel trusses. Choose the incorrect statement made about trusses.
A:Protected open web steel joists are particularly vulnerable to elevated temperatures of a fire and may collapse after only 5 or 10 minutes
B:"I" beams protruding above the roof surface or roofs built in step fashion with one store roof slightly higher than another sometimes give false impression of fire division walls. The side walls of such protrusions are made of wood sheathing and are easily detected by striking them with a tool to differentiate them from a masonry wall
C: Open web steel joists come in standardize lengths, depths, and carrying capacities. They are used to span long distances up to 60 feet
D: Wood truss roofs appear to fail without warning. The roof does not sag or get "spongy." Steel trusses tend to "stretch" when losing their strength because of elevated temperatures, but wood tends to "snap"

Which statement below regarding the common features of Row Frame buildings is described incorrectly?
A: Common or poorly fire-stopped cockloft and cornice permits rapid fire spread into exposures. The term “Row Frame” is derived from the fact that these are constructed in rows, often running the length of the entire block.
B:To gain entrance to the roof from the interior of the building, there is a bulkhead which is reached by an interior stairway from the top floor.
C: Lack of fire stopping at cellar ceilings may permit fire travel from one building to another. Sometimes the cellar runs under more than one building with no separation.
D:There are many variations in the construction of these buildings. Light and airshafts are found in some, while not in others. Usually the buildings of longer length will have the shafts. Air and light shafts are of wood, and fire in shafts rapidly assumes blowtorch proportions.
To gain entrance to the roof from the interior of the building, there is a scuttle which is reached by an iron ladder from the top floor. The scuttle is usually near the skylight over the stairs.
