    The fire safety of a building depends on two types of fire precautions - what are they called?

    • A.

      Reactive and Dorment

    • B.

      Passive and Active

    • C.

      Interior and Exterior

    Correct Answer
    B. Passive and Active
    Explanation
    The fire safety of a building depends on two types of fire precautions - passive and active. Passive fire precautions are measures that are built into the building's design and structure to slow down the spread of fire, such as fire-resistant walls and doors. Active fire precautions, on the other hand, are systems and equipment that actively detect and suppress fires, such as fire alarms and sprinkler systems. Both passive and active fire precautions are essential in ensuring the safety of a building and its occupants in the event of a fire.

    Which one of the following is a passive fire precaution that works by forming areas that will resist fire?

    • A.

      Room Compartments

    • B.

      Stairway Enclosures

    • C.

      Fire Areas

    Correct Answer
    A. Room Compartments
    Explanation
    Room compartments are a passive fire precaution that works by forming areas that will resist fire. They are designed to contain the spread of fire within a specific area, preventing it from spreading to other parts of a building. By creating fire-resistant barriers, such as fire-rated walls and doors, room compartments help to limit the damage caused by a fire and provide additional time for occupants to evacuate safely. This measure is essential in ensuring the safety of individuals and minimizing the potential for fire-related injuries or fatalities.

  • 5. 

    What are the two major problems with maintaining the passive fire precautions in a building?

    • A.

      Windows kept closed and Doors wedged shut

    • B.

      No escape route signage and No emergency lighting

    • C.

      Doors held open and storage in corridors

    Correct Answer
    C. Doors held open and storage in corridors
    Explanation
    The two major problems with maintaining passive fire precautions in a building are doors being held open and storage in corridors. When doors are held open, it hinders the ability of fire doors to effectively contain the spread of fire and smoke. This compromises the safety of occupants and increases the risk of the fire spreading rapidly. Additionally, storing items in corridors obstructs evacuation routes and makes it difficult for people to escape in case of a fire. Both of these issues can significantly impact the effectiveness of passive fire precautions and jeopardize the safety of the building and its occupants.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which one of the following is NOT an active fire precaution?

    • A.

      Door closures

    • B.

      Emergency escape lighting

    • C.

      Fire extinguishers

    Correct Answer
    A. Door closures
    Explanation
    Door closures are an active fire precaution. They are designed to automatically close and seal off fire doors in the event of a fire, preventing the spread of smoke and flames to other areas of a building. This helps to contain the fire and provide additional time for evacuation. Emergency escape lighting and fire extinguishers are also active fire precautions, as they are specifically implemented to aid in the safe evacuation of individuals and to suppress or extinguish fires.

    There are two types of fire alarm systems found in NHS premises, what are they?

    • A.

      Interior alarms and Exterior alarms

    • B.

      Single stage and Two stage

    • C.

      Double Stage Systems

    Correct Answer
    B. Single stage and Two stage
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Single stage and Two stage." Single stage fire alarm systems have a single level of alarm activation, meaning that when a fire is detected, the alarm is immediately activated. Two stage fire alarm systems, on the other hand, have two levels of alarm activation. The first level is a warning alarm, which allows staff to investigate and potentially address the situation before the full alarm is activated. This allows for a more controlled response and minimizes unnecessary evacuations.

    Correct Answer
    A. Illuminate escape routes
    Explanation
    The primary purpose of Escape lighting is to illuminate escape routes. This is important in emergency situations such as fires, where visibility may be reduced and people need to quickly and safely exit a building. By providing adequate lighting along escape routes, individuals can easily locate and navigate their way to safety.
