Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    During a fire emergency, you should close all doors behind you to slow the spread of a fire.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Closing all doors behind you during a fire emergency is an effective measure to slow down the spread of fire. By closing doors, you are creating barriers that can potentially block the fire from spreading to other areas of the building. This can buy valuable time for people to evacuate safely and for firefighters to arrive and extinguish the fire. Closed doors can also help to reduce the amount of oxygen available to the fire, which can help to limit its growth and intensity. Therefore, it is important to close all doors behind you during a fire emergency.

    An exit route consists of three parts: exit access, exit, and exit discharge.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An exit route consists of three parts: exit access, exit, and exit discharge. This means that in order for an exit route to be considered complete and safe, it must have all three components. The exit access refers to the path that leads to the exit, the exit itself is the actual way out of the building or space, and the exit discharge is the area outside the building where individuals can safely disperse. Therefore, the statement is true as all three parts are necessary for a proper exit route.

    Each exit route door must be free of decorations or signs that obscure the visibility of the door. This is important because in the event of an emergency, people need to be able to easily locate and access the exit. If the door is obstructed by decorations or signs, it can delay or prevent people from escaping safely. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that exit route doors have clear visibility to ensure a quick and efficient evacuation.
