•12 hrs

•24 hrs

5

Fumigations:

When in the gaseous state, sulfuryl fluoride and chloropicrin ____ (are or are not?) skin absorptive

Are not

6

Structure Fumigation/pesticide incidents:

Full turnouts and SCBA with face piece donned and on air is required when working within ___ ft of the involved structure

7

30 ft

10

Prior to entry into fumigated structure:

Remove all the sandbags holding down the tarps on _____ sides of the structure

2 opposing sides. Ideally, the windward and leeward sides using the prevailing wind to your advantage.

11

Prior to entry into a fumigated structure:

Remove all the clips from the tarp seams on the ____ (same two or opposing two?) sides of the structure.

Same two sides

12

Fumigated structures:

Place fire department blowers at a portal on the _____ (windward or leeward?) side of the structure; our blowers will ventilate the building faster than pest control industry fans.

Windward

13

Fumigated structures:

Ensure a minimum ___ inch line is deployed for Emergency Decon.

1 inch

14

Prior to entry into fumigated structures:
True or false?
You shall Ladder the structure and proceed to the roof to pull the tarps up to the roof on both sides when ventilating a structure for entry
