    Which of the following is NOT a description of Moderate Damage?

    • D.

      Major Damage to Interior Contents

    Correct Answer
    A. Partial or Total Collapse
    Explanation
    Partial or Total Collapse is not a description of Moderate Damage because it implies a severe level of destruction where a structure has either partially or completely collapsed. Moderate Damage refers to a level of damage that is less severe, and typically includes visible cracks or breaks in the wall, visible signs of damage, and major damage to interior contents.

    Tilting is a description of Moderate Damage to a structure. 

    • A.

      True

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Tilting is not a description of Moderate Damage to a structure. Tilting refers to the leaning or slanting of a structure, which may indicate structural instability or foundation issues. Moderate Damage, on the other hand, refers to the extent of harm or deterioration to a structure, which can include cracks, fractures, or partial collapse. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Explanation
    The statement "CERT sizeup is NOT a continuous process" is false. CERT sizeup refers to the process of assessing the situation during an emergency or disaster.

      Search

    • B.

    • C.

      Rescue

    • D.

      Saving

    Correct Answer
    D. Saving
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Saving" because it is not a separate operation of Search and Rescue. Search involves looking for a missing person or object, Sizeup involves assessing the situation and determining the resources needed, and Rescue involves physically extracting the person or object from a dangerous situation. However, "Saving" is not a distinct operation in the search and rescue process.

By actively listening for these cues, CERT members can increase their chances of locating and helping victims in emergency situations.

    Which of the following is NOT a way of creating a safe rescue environment?

    • A.

      Wait for the Cavalry

    • B.

      Maintain Rescuer Safety

    • C.

      Triage in Lightly or Moderately Damaged Buildings

      Evacuate Victims as Quickly as Possible

    Correct Answer
    A. Wait for the Cavalry
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Wait for the Cavalry." This option suggests waiting for external help or assistance to arrive before taking any action in a rescue situation. However, in creating a safe rescue environment, it is important to prioritize certain actions such as maintaining rescuer safety, triaging in lightly or moderately damaged buildings, and evacuating victims as quickly as possible. Waiting for external help may delay the rescue process and put the lives of victims and rescuers at risk.

    • D.

      How Brave the Rescuer Feels

    Correct Answer
    C. The Risks Involved for the Rescuer
    Explanation
    The decision to attempt rescue is based on the risks involved for the rescuer. This means that the rescuer will consider the potential dangers and hazards they may face while attempting the rescue. Factors such as the severity of the disaster, the presence of any immediate threats, and the likelihood of success will be taken into account. The rescuer will prioritize their own safety and well-being while assessing the risks involved in order to make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with the rescue.
