Can You Pass This Hardest Fire Incident Safety Officer Test?

A Fire Incident Safety Officer is a rescuer who is trained in firefighting. The risky tasks of firefighters are fire suppression, rescue, fire prevention and basic first aid. They need to be cautious while search and rescue operations which can be dangerous. This quiz brings out the vital information related to firefighting and Fire safety. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!
