PS if necessary engine can use multiversal,
In Line pumping should be considered.
Rowframe. When would inline pumping be considered?
Vacant buildings in a row.
Rowframe. Vacant buildings in a row. 2nd line not needed to back up 1st line you have 2 choices?
opposite exposure or through an exp. to rear yard. PS After the 2nd hoseline the rest directed by IC
PD's. When engine company considers back stretch, What should they consider?
dropping 2 handlines in front of building.
PS In Line pumping would increase the speed of the operation
PD's. The primary consideration for the placement for 1st line for fire on the 1st fl or floors above is?
through the front door.
PS members must ensure fire did not start on lower floor or cellar before 1st line is committed.
PD's. Fire in the cellar the best access to take is?
entrance door that provides the quickest access to the fire area. this entrance may be through the main entrance or a secondary entrance door.
PD's Who can order an exterior hoseline operated into a cellar window?
Chief or Company Officer.

Unable to locate any cellar entrance.
serious or advanced cellar fire.
cellar fire INVOLVING LW construction.
IMPORTANT. Acro -Saul
PD's. Members on the 1st fl and exterior line is being operated into the cellar window. What safety considerations should be taken into account?
operate under the protection of a charged hoseline.
secure area of refuge, ensuring ready means of egress.
exiting the building.
T/F PD's FF's trapped by fire in the cellar or endangered by fire because of collapse the IC should order the immediate operation of hoseline into cellar window.
Good practice at cellar fires especially serious cellar fires. Position this line near the FRONT of building.
PD's Who coordinates the placement of the 1st hoseline?
Engine Officer and Ladder Officer
PS just like HRFPMD's
PD's In detached and semi detached what is the best access to cellar fires?
The secondary entrance either found on the rear or side of the building.
PS some entrances are in the front
PD's T/F. When using a secondary entrance flake hoseline then size up layout to entrance,stairs and cellar.
False size up 1st then flake
PS especially important in narrow alley, driveway or rear yard.
PD's can Bilco doors be used for hoseline advancement?
Yes, if it is the only option but is least desirable.
Extensive forcible entry and bilco is more indicative
of UNoccupied cellar
PD's in a row of attached buildings and there is a cellar fire, where is the best way to stretch the line?
Through the front door any other way there is too many obstacles.
PD's there are various factors the preclude the descent of the 1st hoseline down the interior cellar stairs. What are they?
High Heat at the TOP of the stairs
Questionable stability of stairs
initial size up indicating a serious fire condition.
PS when this happens use secondary entrance or cellar window.

PD's What is critical at cellar fires?
Control of interior cellar door. 1st line will remain until fire is CONTROLLED
PD's Cellar fires. 1st line gets repositioned to the exterior, Who can order this?
PS URGENT by IC using EAB and ensure acknowledgement by interior units
Acting Chief Officer/ Chief Officer.
PS this is done if no 2nd line available or unable to find interior cellar entrance
PD's. Cellar fires. When the only line is repositioned to the exterior there are 3 considerations?

is another hoseline available.
is repositioning to save or protect life.
will delay in water severely expose an adjoining property.
PD's 1st line is getting repositioned for the cellar fire1st ladder goes where and what about the ladder company on the upper floor?
1st ladder Must be withdrawn BEFORE hoseline is repositioned.
Upper fl. ladder withdrawn to to a safe area if no portables are positioned and available.

forcible entry team.
PD's Cellar fires 2nd hoseline. If not needed to back up 1st hoseline, where does it go?

PD's Upper floor fire. 3rd line goes where?
charged in front of building and operated as ordered by the IC.
PD's Building fully involved. The engine company backstretches they drop what lines?
2 handlines in front of building.
PS consider 2 1/2 hose for faster knock down, greater reach, more volume and increased exposure protection.
PD's fully involved u consider using the 2 1/2 for what reasons?
PS operate on exterior to protect exposures before entering
faster knock down/greater reach
increased exp protection
heavy 1st fl fire in larger Private Dwelling (Queen Anne)
PD's fully involved before u enter what must happen?
