(B) If the manifold is equipped with a relief valve, the 2 ½” relief valve discharge must be
capped and the valve kept in the fully closed position.
(C) A water soluble marker is used to draw a line around the circumference of the hose as close
as possible to the male butt at each coupling. A movement of 1/8” or more would require the
length to be placed out of service.

PART III – DUNN – Ch. #7, 8, & 9:
CHAPTER 7
1. A primary structural element is a structure which supports another structural member.
Which of the following incorrectly describes primary structural members? (p. 95)
(A) A Flat roof has two primary structural members (Two bearing walls).
(B) A Gable roof has three primary structural members (Two bearing walls and one ridge
rafter).
(C) A Hip roof has seven primary structural members (Two bearing walls, one ridge rafter and
four hip rafters).
(D) Primary structural members include header and trimmer beams, ridge rafters, hip rafters
and bearing walls.

1. C

35

2. Which of the three most common types of wood construction used for sloping roofs has the
largest area of unsupported roof deck? (p. 96)
(A) Timber truss
(B) Plank-and-beam
(C) Rafter construction

2. A

36

3. Choose the incorrect point about operating at a peaked roof building. (p. 101-102)
(A) Firefighters can protect themselves when working on a peaked roof by using a roof ladder
hooked on to the ridge rafter or by operating from an aerial or tower ladder.
(B) A roof ladder will protect firefighters from a roof deck and roof rafter collapse.
(C) When firefighters are operating at a private home with a sloping roof, it is more effective to
remove smoke from the structure by venting top floor windows than by cutting a vent opening.
(D) Because a sloping roof sheds water and snow when properly pitched, it may be designed to
support less of a live load than a flat roof.

3. B

37

CHAPTER 8
4. During a fire, early identification of a truss is a key to a safe operation. Which one of the
following is not recognized as a size up indicator of a truss roof? (p. 112)
(A) A roof built in step fashion, with each section higher than the next.
(B) A large open space without columns, which indicates a long span of roof support.
(C) A mounded roof space, which can be seen only on bowstring trusses.
(D) Certain occupancies that frequently use truss construction in the roof, such as
supermarkets, bowling alleys, garages, theaters, places of worship, auto dealerships, piers and
armories.

4. A

38

5. Fires in buildings with bowstring timber truss roofs are extremely dangerous. Choose the
incorrect point about these buildings. (p. 112, 113)
(A) A truss roof concealed by a ceiling is much safer for firefighters than a truss roof without a
ceiling. The ceiling protects the timber trusses, preventing a contents fire from spreading to the
trusses.
(B) When a bowstring timber truss roof is concealed by a ceiling, there can be no extinguishing
a fire in a truss space from above.
(C) When a bowstring timber truss roof is concealed by a ceiling, there can be no
extinguishment from below the burning truss through a trap door in the ceiling.
(D) When a fire extends to a timber truss attic space, prepare for a defensive outside attack and
protect exposures.

5. A

39

6. Firefighting strategies for buildings with timber trusses not concealed by a ceiling are
different than those that have a ceiling. Which one of the following is an incorrect action to take
at one of these buildings? (p. 113, p. 115)
(A) The first arriving engine company at a timber truss roof building without a ceiling should
attack the fire directly with a large diameter hoseline. A powerful water stream, capable of
reaching distances of 50 feet, will be needed.
(B) The first hoseline should attack the main body of fire. If the first stream does not control
the flames within the first few seconds of water discharge, and it appears that the fire will
increase, interior firefighting should be discontinued and firefighters withdrawn.
(C) If the first hoseline is successful and controls the fire at floor level and it appears that the
fire will not spread, a back up large diameter hoseline should be stretched into the building.
(D) If the fire is in a single timber truss, all interior operations must immediately cease and
members withdrawn.
(E) Firefighters attempting the initial hoseline attack on a fire should be positioned behind a
truss section next to the one on fire.

6. D

40

7. Choose the incorrect point about venting a bowstring timber truss roof. (p. 114)
(A) In a bowstring timber truss roofed building which does not have the web members enclosed
with plasterboard, vent openings may be made in the front and rear sloping portions of the roof,
providing horizontal cross ventilation of the entire roof space.
(B) To determine if a fire has spread to the roof space of a bowstring truss, a rectangular cut
should be made in the sloping front or rear of the roof from the safety of an aerial platform.
(C) If a small fire, such as in an overheated motor or electrical wiring, exists in an attic space
that is concealed by a ceiling, and the access to the truss attic space can’t be found, quick access
can be obtained by making a roof cut opening at the sloping ends of the roof deck.
(D) A hose stream can be directed into a truss roof area through a roof cut opening at the
sloping ends if the small, normal access opening cannot be located.

7. B

41

8. At a church fire, upon arrival, the first officer should locate and size up the fire and
determine if the blaze can be extinguished with a hoseline. Choose the incorrect tactic taken.
(p. 118-119, p. 124)
(A) If the fire is extinguishable, the first line is taken through the front or side door to the seat
of the fire and the fire is extinguished.
(B) The largest hose should be stretched to give firefighters the most water power with the
greatest reach.
(C) A second large diameter hoseline should immediately back up the first line.
(D) If the first two hoselines do not extinguish the fire, a third hoseline should be promptly
stretched through a different entrance to support the fire attack.

8. D

42

9. At a church fire, as long as there are sufficient resources to advance the interior attack
lines, apparatus should begin to be positioned for defensive operations. Where should the first
aerial/tower ladder be positioned? (p. 119)
(A) In front of the building.
(B) The side of the building near the stained glass windows nearest to the fire.
(C) In a corner safe area and the aerial platform raised to the rose window.
(D) At the rear of the building and the aerial platform raised to the steeple.

9. C

43

10. Church fires require several tactics not seen in other types of buildings. Which choice is
incorrect concerning these tactics? (p.120, 122-123)
(A) In addition to opening up the concealed spaces after the fire is extinguished, firefighters
should quickly gain access to the attic space to check for extension.
(B) If fire reaches the attic space of most places of worship, it can usually be extinguished with
handheld hoselines through the small attic door.
(C) If the fire is extinguished by interior hoselines, the side stained glass window may not have
to be vented.
(D) If the interior must be vented for the advance of the first two interior hoselines, then the
stained glass windows nearest to the fire on both sides of the building should be vented first.

10. B

44

11. When a church contains a steeple in the front, which side(s) of the building are the most
dangerous areas during a fire? (p. 123)
(A) Exposure #1only
(B) Exposures # 2 and 4 only
(C) Exposures #1, 2, and 4 only
(D) Exposures # 1, 2, 3, 4

11. C

45

CHAPTER 9
12. To determine the risks of a flat roof collapse, we need to know the following: What type of
roof support system has been used, what method was used to connect the joists to the supporting
wall, and is there a built up structure above the main roof supports or a rain roof. Which choice
is incorrect concerning these three facts about roof construction? (p. 133-137)
(A) When a fire building has a steel bar joist system supporting the roof, horizontal ventilation
of windows and doors, in advance of hoselines, is preferred to vertical ventilation.
(B) Wood joists are spaced closer together than lightweight roof supports, and will generally
give warning prior to collapse.
(C) If the center of the roof is burned away, a beam end encased in a brick cavity may
temporarily provide support as a cantilevered beam.
(D) In corbel shelf construction, the beam ends may rotate off their resting position when the
center of the beam is burned away.
(E) When fire weakens inverted roof supports, and the main supports are stable, members must
immediately discontinue operations and evacuate the roof.

12. E

46

PART IV – TB – EEO, FIRES #7 & 8:
TRAINING BULLETINS EEO
1. All members must be aware of the implications of discrimination, harassment, and sexual
harassment. Which of the following is incorrect concerning these topics? (1.3.1, 1.3.2,
1.3.3,1.4)
(A) The recipient determines whether or not the behavior is unwelcome. The impact, not the
intent, is the determining factor in assessing whether sexual harassment has occurred.
(B) Disparate treatment includes excluding someone from meals, when others who do not
belong to the protected groups are not excluded.
(C) The workplace includes Fire Department affiliated functions (including parades, runs, ball
games, company dances, parties and picnics), whether they occur on or off duty in the confines
of New York City. These events outside of New York City are not considered an extension of
the workplace.
(D) Repeatedly asking a person for a date when he or she has made it clear the answer is “No”
is an example of verbal sexual harassment.

1. C

47

2. Communication, record keeping, and support are essential elements in eliminating
discrimination. Which choice incorrectly describes these actions? (2, 3.1, 3.2, 4.2)
(A) If a person feels threatened or uncomfortable, the harassed individual may communicate
this directly to their Officer and/or an FDNY EEO Officer/EEO Counselor.
(B) If it is the complainant’s Officer who is engaging in the offensive conduct, the complainant
should communicate with someone at the next level of supervision and/or the EEO Officer/EEO
Counselor.
(C) Offensive material should be removed by the complainant from bulletin boards. Evidence
should be dated by the Officer and forwarded to the EEO Officer, after making a copy of the

49

4. Lt. Smith is working a 9x6 tour in Engine 300, when a Firefighter approaches him and
notifies him of an alleged incident of harassment. Which action taken by Lt. Smith should be
corrected? (7.2)
(A) After listening objectively to the complaint and determining that it is EEO related,
Lt. Smith contacted the EEO Officer immediately.
(B) The EEO Officer requested that Lt. Smith conduct an investigation. Lt. Smith declined due
to his knowledge that only BITS or the Inspector General can request this.
(C) Lt. Smith provided a copy of the Fire Department’s EEO Complaint Procedure PA/ID 1/77
to the member.
(D) Lt. Smith informed the member that they had the option of filing directly with BITS if the

FIRES 7 {INCINERATOR/COMPACTOR FIRES}
5. At incinerator operations, locating and clearing the blockage is extremely important.
Choose the incorrect choice concerning these operations. (2.2, 2.3)
(A) If you open a chute door on a floor and smoke comes out, the blockage is generally above
that floor.
(B) When you open a chute door and a draft goes inward or there is little smoke, the blockage
is generally below that floor or the blockage has freed itself.
(C) A blockage can be pushed down with a hook or a bent reinforcing rod that is about 10 feet
long and bent into L shape.
(D) Never drop anything from above to free the blockage.

5. D

FIRES 7 {INCINERATOR/COMPACTOR FIRES}
5. At incinerator operations, locating and clearing the blockage is extremely important.
Choose the incorrect choice concerning these operations. (2.2, 2.3)
(A) If you open a chute door on a floor and smoke comes out, the blockage is generally above
that floor.
(B) When you open a chute door and a draft goes inward or there is little smoke, the blockage
is generally below that floor or the blockage has freed itself.
(C) A blockage can be pushed down with a hook or a bent reinforcing rod that is about 10 feet
long and bent into L shape.
(D) Never drop anything from above to free the blockage.

51

6. Choose the incorrect tactic implemented at an incinerator fire. (2.3 D, E, 2.4 B,
3.2B, 3.3)
(A) Units were unable to free a blockage, so they burned it off.
(B) After all other options failed, a hoseline was used from the floor above to extinguish the
fire. Units were unable to shut the auxiliary gas burner until after they flooded the shaft.
(C) A blockage between the incinerator and the first floor was cleared by the LCC using a
hook to pull it down from below. After clearing the blockage, the LCC shut off the auxiliary
burner.
(D) When opening a chute door, members stood to the side of the hopper door on the hinged
side.

6. C

3.3 Members attempting to clear a blockage from the base of the incinerator should shut off
the auxiliary burner before commencing operations. Gas explosions of some
consequence involving the auxiliary gas burners, while infrequent events, have occurred.

52

7. Compactor rooms and units require several types of fire protection. Which one of the
following is incorrect concerning this protection? (7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.5)
(A) The compactor room should be fire resistive, protected by a fire door and supplied with an
automatic sprinkler.
(B) A water outlet and a hose are required in the compactor room.
(C) Sprinkler heads shall be provided in compactor units. They shall be arranged so that they
may be readily replaced, unless the heads are electrically operated.
(D) Electrically operated sprinkler heads are open, and are thermostatically controlled to
operate at approximately 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
(E) In refuse chutes in new construction, sprinklers shall be provided spaced not more than 3
stories apart for the height of the chute.

7. E

7.5 In refuse chutes constructed in new construction, sprinklers shall be provided spaced not
more than two stories apart for the height of the chute. They shall be recessed and so
arranged that fused sprinkler heads may be readily replaced unless electrically operated.

53

8. A compactor fire is more serious than an incinerator fire. A compactor fire is a structural
fire while an incinerator fire which does not extend or communicate from the shaft is an
emergency. Choose the correct action to take at a compactor chute fire. (8.2)
(A) Freeing the blockage is the first option. The possibility of extension is greater in the chute
than in the unit.
(B) The officer and forcible entry team must first locate the electrical shut off and shut power
to the unit before operations commence.
(C) The 1st engine company will proceed to the floor where the burning material is located and
stretch a line and extinguish the fire.
(D) After the fire is extinguished, open the compactor unit door before the line is shut down
and sprinkler OS&Y is closed to ensure complete extinguishment.

8. B

8.2 Chute fire (operations).
A. The first engine company to arrive will proceed to one level above the burning
material, stretch a line and operate into the chute to extinguish the fire. Freeing
the blockage, as you would in an incinerator fire, could result in a more serious
situation in the compactor unit, because it is not designed for burning refuse. The
possibility of extension is greater in the unit than in the chute.

2) After the engine company has extinguished the fire, the ladder company
may begin overhauling. Before opening the compactor unit access door
be sure the hoseline is shut down and sprinkler OS&Y is closed. If the
engine is still using the line or the sprinkler is still operating, glass and
other debris may be driven out of the compactor unit.

54

9. If there is fire in the compactor shaft or unit, who will operate with the engine company?
(8.2 A, 8.3 B)
(A) The OV FF
(B) The Roof FF
(C) The LCC
(D) One member of the Forcible Entry Team

9. A

55

FIRES 8 {MOTOR VEHICLE EMERGENCIES}
10. Immediately upon arrival at an operation on a highway, the officer in command must take
steps to prevent escalation of the incident in the form of a secondary collision. Which is not one
of these steps? (4.7, 5.1, 6.1, 6.5)
(A) Where weather conditions or smoke blowing across the highway limits visibility, the
highway must be closed.
(B) At least one vehicle, other than the pumper being used to extinguish the fire, shall be used
to divert or block oncoming traffic for the duration of the incident or until PD arrives and
assumes traffic control.
(C) When there is a fire in a flammable liquid tank truck located on a grade, the apparatus must
be placed to the rear of the incident.
(D) Blocking apparatus shall be placed at least 50 feet behind the first operating unit to create a
safe working area.

10. C

However, an obvious exception will be a fire in a flammable liquids tank truck or other
hazardous material carrier located on a grade. In such a case, the highway will have to be
closed at a sufficient distance from the incident to prevent civilian vehicles becoming
involved if a container should rupture or develop a leak. Apparatus will have to be
located uphill of the involved vehicles.
6.2 Where placement of apparatus will expose it to the possibility of fire extension, pumper
may be placed beyond the fire vehicle, but second apparatus, and third if necessary, shall
always be placed between oncoming traffic and the operating forces.

56

11. Engine 100 is extinguishing a vehicle fire on the Long Island Expressway in Queens, where
the posted speed limit is 50 MPH. Ladder 200 is blocking the right lane to the rear of Engine
100. The Officer of Ladder 200 notes that the fastest speed expected on the roadway is 70 MPH.
What is the minimum distance to the furthest flare? (8.1 C, Figure 1)
(A) 310 feet from the rear of Engine 100.
(B) 550 feet from the rear of Engine 100.

incorrect statement concerning access and safety procedures. (9.1, 10)
(A) Never operate across a center divider.
(B) Never take a partial lane.
(C) Never allow traffic to come around both sides of an accident scene.
(D) Never assume traffic will behave the way you expect.

12. A

58

13. The many hazards at motor vehicle fires require members to follow safety precautions.
Which of the following is not one of them? (11.1, 11.2)
(A) Approach the vehicle from the sides and upwind if possible, and position the line between
the motor vehicle and exposures.
(B) For a fire in an engine compartment where the hood is difficult to open, operate through the
front grill.
(C) Use a coarse spray stream when magnesium parts are on fire. This can be accomplished by
removing the tip and partially opening the nozzle.
(D) At van fires, the engine cover in the passenger compartment should be removed from the
side after the fire is knocked down.

13. B

59

14. Units are encountering hybrid vehicles much more frequently. All of the following are
correct precautions to follow except which one? (11.6)
(A) Never cut any high voltage cables. On most of these vehicles the high voltage cables are
colored Orange, although some cables are Blue.
(B) Make sure the Ready light is not on.
(C) On a hybrid vehicle with a keyless start system, make sure the ignition is off and the key or
key fob is at least 10 feet away from the vehicle.
(D) Avoid contact with the high voltage cables unless the high voltage battery in the back of
the vehicle has first been disconnected.
(E) At a hybrid vehicle fire, always make sure that the high voltage battery case is cooled down
to prevent re-ignition.

14. C

• Many hybrid vehicles use a keyless start system. Make sure the ignition is
OFF and the key or key fob is at least 15 feet away from the vehicle.
