Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Removing any one component of the fire triangle, such as FUEL, can stop or prevent a fire.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Removing any one component of the fire triangle, such as fuel, can stop or prevent a fire. The fire triangle consists of three elements: fuel, heat, and oxygen. Fuel is any material that can burn, and without fuel, a fire cannot sustain itself. By removing the fuel source, there will be nothing for the fire to burn, and therefore the fire will be extinguished or prevented from starting in the first place.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that once a CODE RED has been initiated in the hospital, it is necessary to wait until the "All Clear" announcement before starting any surgery.

Therefore, it is crucial to follow this protocol to ensure the well-being of everyone involved.
