1

The traditional most obvious role for the aerial apparatus on the fire ground remains the _____

Rescue of trapped persons

2

The order of tactical priorities remains the traditional one

Rescue
Exposures
Confinement
Extinguishment

3

Is accomplished first either by removing victims from the fires threat or by extinguishing or at least knocking down the fire, thereby making removal of the victim less dangerous

Rescue

4

The priorities for the use of the aerial apparatus are as follows

Rescue
Exposure protection
Ventilation
Elevated streams

5

When victim removal via ladder is required above the third floor, it is the aerial ladder that is usually needed for this operation

Priority 1 rescue

6

Most portable ladders carried on fire apparatus will be of insufficient length for operations at heights greater than the ____

Third floor

7

When faced with a large fire and no immediate need for the aerial device to perform rescue work, the apparatus may be called upon to provide an ____

Elevated stream

8

With the need for rescue and exposure protection addressed, the aerial may then be used to perform Horizontal and vertical ventilation

Priority 3 ventilation

9

When called for by the IC, the application of an ______ by the aerial apparatus can be an effective tactic in the suppression of heavy fire

Elevated stream

10

While a handline can be advanced up and off the tip of an aerial, another elevated stream-operation entails deployment of a stream fed by a

Standpipe

11

In buildings without standpipes or buildings under construction, however, it may be more expedient to use the aerials ____ to deploy a handline

Prepiped water way

12

All aerial apparatus have a _____, referring to the location where the aerial device attaches to the chassis

Turntable

13

When the aerial device is attached to the rear, it is referred to as a

Rear mounted device

14

When the aerial device is attached to the middle of the chassis, it is referred to as a ______

Midship device

15

The aerial ladder without any basket or platform is a

Straight ladder

16

Straight ladders have a

Truss construction

17

NFPA 1901 requires a minimum tip load capacity of

250 pounds

18

Elevated platforms require a minimum tip load of

750 pounds

19

Aerial platforms can be referred to as ______, depending on the region of the country

Tower ladders or ladder towers

20

The boom may or may not serve as a ladder, although the ______ is most common

Ladder type boom

21

In general, _____ have a telescoping boom that does not articulate and is equipped with a bucket, basket, or platform from which fire fighters can operate

Platforms

22

The ______ consists of a boom with a hinge or knuckle joint in its midsection; the boom is not constructed with a ladder truss design

Articulating platform

23

Articulating platforms may range from _____ in length

50 to 100 feet

24

The most common construction technique for an aerial device is

Truss construction

25

The truss carries the load of the aerial and any live load to the turntable and into the torque box, where it is transferred first to the _____ and ultimately into the earth

Stabilizers

26

Although there are still many aerial devices that utilize true hydraulic controls, the modern aerial is stabilized and maneuvered using hydraulic systems that are operated by

Electronic controls

27

Commonly referred to as “______” arrangements, these controls regulate the movement of the hydraulic fluid from its reservoir through the hydraulic pump and to the hydraulic cylinders

Electric over hydraulic

28

The hydraulic pump is generally powered by a _____ unit from the chassis power train

Power take off

29

All aerials must be ___ prior to elevation, extension, and rotation of the aerial device to prevent the entire apparatus from overturning

Stabilized

30

Are the most common type of stabilizer

H type
