    What should be the angle of extinguishment while fighting fire?

    • A.

      30o

    • B.

      45o

    • C.

      60o

    B. 45o
    Explanation
    The angle of extinguishment while fighting fire should be 45 degrees. This angle allows for optimal coverage and dispersion of the extinguishing agent, ensuring that the fire is effectively suppressed. A 45-degree angle allows for a wider spray pattern, increasing the chances of reaching all areas of the fire and preventing it from spreading further. This angle also helps to minimize the risk of re-ignition by thoroughly saturating the affected area.

Standing too close to the fire can put the individual at risk of being injured by the flames, heat, or smoke. By maintaining a distance of 6 feet, the person can effectively operate the extinguisher while also staying out of harm's way.

    Correct Answer
    A. They are hooking, unhooking, guiding the load.
    Explanation
    When an employee is hooking, unhooking, or guiding a load suspended by a crane, they may need to be directly under the load to properly attach or detach it or to ensure its safe movement. This is a necessary task that requires the employee to be in close proximity to the load and is often done with proper safety precautions and training. However, in all other situations, it is important that no employee is under the load to avoid the risk of injury or accidents.

    Personnel platforms must be able to support their own weight and at least 4 times the maximum intended load. This means that the platform should have enough strength and stability to carry not only the weight of the individuals using it but also an additional four times that weight. This requirement ensures the safety of the personnel using the platform and prevents any potential accidents or collapses due to overload.

    Which of the following should you do if you are unable to evacuate a burning building?

    • A.

      Open the doors and windows to let the smoke out

    • B.

      Break window

    • C.

      Breath through your mouth

    • D.

      Stay low under the smoke

    Correct Answer
    D. Stay low under the smoke
    Explanation
    In the event that you are unable to evacuate a burning building, it is important to stay low under the smoke. Smoke rises, and by staying low, you can avoid inhaling the toxic fumes and increase your chances of finding a clear path to safety. Opening doors and windows may actually worsen the situation by providing more oxygen to the fire. Breaking a window should only be done as a last resort if there is no other way to escape. Breathing through your mouth is not an effective solution as it does not filter out the harmful smoke particles.
