    Does a fireguard approach a fire from a downwind direction?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    A fireguard does not approach a fire from a downwind direction because doing so would put them at risk of being engulfed by the flames and smoke. Approaching a fire from the downwind side would expose them to the full force of the fire and make it difficult to control or extinguish the fire effectively. Therefore, it is safer for a fireguard to approach a fire from an upwind direction, where the wind is blowing away from the fire, reducing the risk of being caught in the fire's path.

This is important to ensure the safety and security of the job site, as it allows Fireguard to identify and address any potential fire hazards or risks in a timely manner. Regular inspections also help in detecting any unauthorized activities or violations of safety protocols. Therefore, it is crucial for Fireguard to walk all areas of the job site every hour during the specified time period.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    If a fire occurs, the fire guard must call the Construction site Fire Safety Manager and owner of the premise.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In the event of a fire, the fire guard is responsible for taking immediate action to extinguish the fire and ensure the safety of the construction site. They should also notify the Construction site Fire Safety Manager and the owner of the premise, but it is not their sole responsibility. Other individuals on the construction site, such as workers or supervisors, may also have the authority to notify these individuals. Therefore, the statement that the fire guard must call the Construction site Fire Safety Manager and owner of the premise is false.
