B) Once the member is located, a FAST Pak must be called for immediately when the member
does not have air, if a member has air the FAST Pak is called for at the discretion of the Fast
Unit Officer.
C) The high pressure air system permits emergency air replenishment of an SCBA from an air
supply source while still in use through the Universal Air Coupling (UAC).
D) The UAC is for emergency use only when a member is low or out of air within an IDLH. If
the condition of the distressed member’s SCBA is in doubt DO NOT provide air via the high
pressure system.

7.2 Once the member is located, a FAST Pak must be called for immediately, regardless of
whether the member has air or not. Every emergency situation is unique. The rescuer
must be trained to assess each situation and decide which re-supply method via the FAST
Pak is best. This decision can vary depending on several factors:
 Condition of the distressed member’s SCBA.
 Position of the distressed member.
 Accessibility for the various air supply methods.

1) Con Edison supplies high pressure steam to nearly 2,000 buildings from 96th Street to the
Battery in Manhattan through more than 100 miles of buried high pressure steam pipe. It is

Edison may place vent stacks over minor steam leaks, to direct the steam up over the roadway. If
a vent pipe has a _________ stripe on the top of it, this indicates that the steam is the result of a
water leak, not a leaking steam main. Please fill in the blank? (Steam, section 4.3)
