Temporary Refuge Area (TRA)

2

What are the three types of structural triage categories?

•not-threatened
•threatened defensible
•threatened non-defensible (lack of safety zone and temporary refuge area)

3

Wild land interface Structure protection:

Which structure protection tactic is used in a rapid evaluation to check for occupants requiring removal or rescue?
•This tactic is when there is no Safety Zone or TRA present and the projected impact time of the fire front prohibit resources from taking preparation action to protect the structure.

Check and go

4

Wild land interface Structure protection:

Which tactic is used when a Safety Zone and TRA are not present and/or when fire spread and intensity are too dangerous to stay in the area when the fire front arrives, but there is adequate time to prepare a structure for defense ahead of the fire front?

Prep and go

5

Wild land interface Structure protection:

Which tactic is used when a Safety Zone and TRA are present and adequate time exists to safely prepare a structure for defense prior to the arrival of the fire front. Fire behavior MUST be such that it is safe for firefighters to remain and engage the fire.

Prep and defend

6

_____ is a follow up tactic employed when Check and Go, Prep and Go, or Bump and Run tactics are initially used. It is used to come in behind the fire front. The goal of is to search for victims, effect perimeter control, extinguish spot fires around structures, control hot spots and reduce ember production.

Fire front following

7

Wild land interface Structure protection:

______ is a tactic where resources typically move ahead of the fire front in the spotting zone to extinguish spot fires and hot spots, and to defend as many structures as possible.

Bump and run

8

Wild land interface Structure protection:

_____ is a tactic utilizing control lines and large water streams from fixed water supplies in an attempt to stop fire spread. The goal is to extinguish structure fires, protect exposures, and reduce ember production. It can be referred to as taking a stand to stop the progression of the fire.

Anchor and hold
