    Once the flames have been put out, the crew should be able to go bak to normal duties

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because after flames have been put out, the crew cannot immediately go back to normal duties. They need to ensure that the area is safe and free from any potential hazards before resuming normal activities. This may involve conducting inspections, assessing damage, and implementing necessary repairs or precautions. Only when it is confirmed that the situation is under control and there is no further risk, can the crew resume their regular duties.

    Should the CO2 system be activated while someone was still in the engine room, it could be fatal

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Activating the CO2 system while someone is still in the engine room can be fatal because CO2 displaces oxygen and can lead to asphyxiation. When the CO2 system is activated, it releases a large amount of carbon dioxide into the space, reducing the oxygen levels. If someone is present in the engine room at that time, they may not have enough oxygen to breathe, leading to suffocation and potentially causing death. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that the engine room is evacuated before activating the CO2 system to prevent any potential harm to individuals.

    Any fire extinguisher can be used on any type of fire

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Different types of fires require different types of fire extinguishers. For example, water extinguishers are suitable for fires involving paper and wood, while CO2 extinguishers are effective for electrical fires. Using the wrong type of fire extinguisher can be ineffective or even dangerous. Therefore, it is not true that any fire extinguisher can be used on any type of fire.
