    The correct answer is R.A.C.E. R.A.C.E. stands for Rescue, Alarm, Contain, and Extinguish. In the case of a fire, the first step is to ensure the safety of individuals by rescuing them if possible. Then, the alarm should be raised to alert others and initiate emergency procedures. The next step is to contain the fire by closing doors or using fire extinguishers, if safe to do so. Finally, efforts should be made to extinguish the fire using appropriate methods.

    • A.

      Flammable Gases

    • B.

      Cooking Oils & Fats

      Ordinary combustibles

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Flammable Gases
    C. Ordinary combustibles
    Explanation
    Dry Chemical Extinguishers marked 'AB:(E)' can be used on flammable gases and ordinary combustibles. Flammable gases refer to any type of gas that can ignite and cause a fire, such as propane or natural gas. Ordinary combustibles include materials like wood, paper, and cloth that can easily catch fire and sustain combustion. However, these extinguishers may not be effective on fires involving cooking oils and fats, which require a different type of extinguishing agent.

    What is 'Stage 1' of the evacuation procedures?

    • A.

      Call contact no. of relevant emergency service

    • B.

      Remove people from immediate danger

    • C.

      Remove people from the threatened area/building to an appropriate assembly area or into other buildings

    Correct Answer
    B. Remove people from immediate danger
    Explanation
    Stage 1 of the evacuation procedures is to remove people from immediate danger. This means that the priority is to ensure the safety of individuals by getting them away from any immediate threats or hazards. This may involve moving them to a safe location within the same building or to an assembly area outside the threatened area or building. Calling the emergency services is important, but it is not specifically mentioned as part of Stage 1 in this question.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following locations is a 'safe' assembly area in the event of a total evacuation?

    • A.

      Railway Car Park

    • B.

      Village Green

    • C.

      Safeway Car Park

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Railway Car Park
    B. Village Green
    Explanation
    The Railway Car Park and the Village Green are both considered safe assembly areas in the event of a total evacuation. These locations are likely to be open spaces that can accommodate a large number of people and provide a safe distance from any potential hazards. The Safeway Car Park may not be a suitable assembly area as it is likely to be congested with vehicles and may not have enough space to safely accommodate a large group of people.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What sort of fires are 'Water' extinguishers used on?

    • A.

      Cooking oil or fat

    • B.

      Burning paper or wood

    • C.

      Electrical

    Correct Answer
    B. Burning paper or wood
    Explanation
    Water extinguishers are used on burning paper or wood fires because water can effectively cool down the temperature of the fire and extinguish it. When water is applied to burning paper or wood, it absorbs the heat from the fire, reducing the temperature and preventing the fire from spreading. However, water should not be used on fires involving cooking oil or fat or electrical fires as it can cause the fire to spread or result in electrical shock.

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    A. Inside front entrance of the Admin building
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Inside front entrance of the Admin building." This is the most logical location to inform the Fire Brigade about the Main Entrance Fire Panel because it is the main entrance of the building and easily accessible. It would be the first place firefighters would check in case of a fire emergency.
