Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Incident safety Officer assumes command of an emergency.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Incident Safety Officer (ISO) does not assume command of an emergency. Their role is to focus solely on the safety of personnel and the incident scene, providing recommendations and guidance to the Incident Commander (IC) who is responsible for overall command and control of the emergency. The ISO's primary objective is to identify and mitigate any safety hazards or risks that may arise during the incident.

    Incident Commander shall designate a Safety officer (ISO)

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    The correct answer is TRUE. In incident management, it is important to have a designated Safety Officer (ISO) who is responsible for ensuring the safety of all personnel involved in the incident. The ISO works closely with the Incident Commander to identify and mitigate any potential safety hazards, develop safety protocols, and provide safety briefings to all personnel. Having a designated ISO helps to prioritize safety and maintain a safe working environment during incidents.

  • 3. 

    Hazard control zones should be established by the Incident Commander at all working incidents.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    In order to ensure the safety of all personnel involved in a working incident, it is important for hazard control zones to be established. These zones help to identify and mitigate potential hazards, allowing for better control and management of the incident. By establishing these zones, the Incident Commander can effectively allocate resources, implement appropriate safety measures, and prevent further escalation of the incident. Therefore, it is crucial for hazard control zones to be established by the Incident Commander at all working incidents.

    The Safety Officer must be in radio communications with the entry and back-up teams, and if possible, have an unobstructed view of their locations in the Hot Zone.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    The Safety Officer needs to be in constant communication with the entry and back-up teams to ensure their safety and provide guidance if needed. Additionally, having an unobstructed view of their locations in the Hot Zone allows the Safety Officer to closely monitor the situation and quickly respond to any emergencies or hazards that may arise. Therefore, it is important for the Safety Officer to be in radio communications with the teams and have a clear view of their locations in the Hot Zone.
