What causes sprinkler heads to open?

Answer: Rise in Temperature
Sprinkler heads are designed to open when there is a rise in temperature. This is because sprinkler heads are equipped with a heat-sensitive element, such as a glass bulb or fusible link, that expands when exposed to high temperatures. When the element expands, it triggers the release of water from the sprinkler head, effectively extinguishing the fire. Therefore, the rise in temperature is the main cause for sprinkler heads to open and activate.

Impairment Coordinator shall maintain records of inspections, servicing and other items relating to maintenance on-site for a period of:

Answer: 3 years
The correct answer is 3 years. The impairment coordinator is responsible for maintaining records of inspections, servicing, and other maintenance-related items on-site. These records need to be kept for a period of 3 years. This ensures that there is a documented history of maintenance activities, which can be useful for future reference, auditing purposes, and compliance with regulations. Keeping these records for a significant period of time allows for proper tracking and monitoring of maintenance activities and helps in identifying any patterns or trends that may require attention or improvement.

Answer: Impairment Coordinator
The correct answer is Impairment Coordinator. The building owner is responsible for assigning a person to maintain records of inspections and out of service repairs. This person is known as the Impairment Coordinator. Their role is to ensure that all inspections and repairs are properly documented and to coordinate any necessary actions to address impairments in the building's fire safety systems. The Impairment Coordinator plays a crucial role in maintaining the safety and compliance of the building's fire safety measures.

For the initial 4 hours of an unplanned or planned out of service, when the area does not exceed 50,000 sq. ft., who is responsible for the fire watch:

Answer: Impairment Coordinator
The impairment coordinator is responsible for the fire watch during the initial 4 hours of an unplanned or planned out of service, as long as the area does not exceed 50,000 sq. ft. The impairment coordinator is typically the person designated to oversee and manage any impairments or shutdowns of fire protection systems in a building. During this time, they are responsible for ensuring that a fire watch is conducted to monitor the area and prevent any potential fire hazards. The building manager and fire safety director may have other responsibilities, but in this specific scenario, it is the impairment coordinator who takes on the responsibility of the fire watch.

After 4 hours of planned or unplanned out of service, such patrols shall be conducted by:

Answer: Fireguard
After 4 hours of planned or unplanned out of service, fireguards are responsible for conducting patrols. Fireguards are trained individuals who monitor and ensure the safety of a building or premises in case of fire emergencies. They are equipped with the knowledge and skills to identify potential fire hazards, respond to fire incidents, and implement fire safety measures. Therefore, fireguards are the appropriate personnel to conduct patrols after a prolonged period of service interruption.

 The Fireguard shall patrol the area affected by the out of service every:

Answer: Hour
The correct answer is "Hour" because the Fireguard is responsible for patrolling the area affected by the out of service every hour. This ensures that any potential fire hazards or safety issues are promptly identified and addressed. Regular patrols help maintain a safe environment and minimize the risk of accidents or emergencies.

Fireguards shall be maintained until systems are restored:

Answer: Continuously, 24 hours
Fireguards shall be maintained continuously, 24 hours a day, to ensure the safety and security of the area until systems are restored. This means that there should always be someone present and vigilant to monitor and respond to any potential fire hazards or emergencies. It is important to have fireguards in place to prevent the spread of fires and to protect people and property from harm.

Fireguards are responsible for maintaining:

Answer: Firewatch and performing fire safety duties
Fireguards are responsible for maintaining firewatch and performing fire safety duties. This means that they are tasked with monitoring and observing areas for potential fire hazards, as well as taking necessary actions to prevent and respond to fires. They play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and security of the premises by implementing fire safety protocols and procedures. Repairs and maintaining the main supply of water are not directly related to the responsibilities of fireguards.

A fire watch is a:

Answer: Person responsible for continuously monitoring hot work activities to detect and respond to fires.
A fire watch refers to the continuous and systematic surveillance of a building in order to detect any potential fires. This involves monitoring the premises to identify any signs of fire or smoke, ensuring early detection and prompt response to minimize the risk of damage or harm. It is an important safety measure to prevent fires from spreading and causing significant destruction.

During patrols, Fireguards should make sure:

Answer: Ensure exit signs are illuminated and self-closing doors are free of unobstructed objects.
Fireguards should ensure that exit signs are illuminated and self-closing doors are free of unobstructed objects during patrols. This is important for maintaining a safe environment in case of a fire emergency. Illuminated exit signs help people locate the nearest exit, while unobstructed self-closing doors allow for quick and easy evacuation. The other options mentioned, such as sweeping and mopping floors or the Fire Safety director having a walkie-talkie, are not directly related to ensuring fire safety during patrols.

From the Occupancy Table, Group B stands for:

Answer: Business
The Occupancy Table categorizes different groups based on their purpose or function in a particular space. Group B is identified as "Business" in the table. This suggests that Group B is associated with commercial activities, such as offices, shops, or other establishments involved in trade or services. The other options, "Bowling Alleys" and "Buildings," do not accurately represent the purpose or function of Group B according to the Occupancy Table.

When a fire is discovered, the fireguard must:

Answer: Sound the alarm
When a fire is discovered, the fireguard must sound the alarm. This is because alerting others about the fire is crucial in order to ensure the safety of everyone in the building. By sounding the alarm, the fireguard can quickly notify others about the emergency, allowing them to evacuate the building and call for help. Waiting for help or going outside of the building may be necessary steps after sounding the alarm, but the immediate action that the fireguard must take is to alert others about the fire.

Fireguards must be provided with at least 1 approved means for notification of the Fire Department.

Answer: Must activate the fire alarm and must also call 911.
The correct answer is that fireguards must activate the fire alarm and also call 911. This is because in the event of a fire, it is crucial to notify both the fire department and the occupants of the building. Activating the fire alarm alerts everyone inside the building to evacuate, while calling 911 ensures that the fire department is notified and can respond to the emergency. Both actions are necessary to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

What is the purpose of sprinkler system?

Answer: To control the fire and extinguish the fire.
The purpose of a sprinkler system is to control and extinguish fires. Sprinkler systems are designed to detect and respond to fires by releasing water or other extinguishing agents onto the affected area. This helps to suppress the fire, prevent its spread, and minimize damage to property and lives. By automatically activating when a fire is detected, sprinkler systems provide an effective and efficient means of fire protection in various settings, such as residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.

A fire alarm can not be reset only at the fire alarm pull station, it must also be reset from the:

Answer: FACP (Fire Alarm Control Panel)
A fire alarm cannot be reset only at the fire alarm pull station because it is also necessary to reset it from the Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP). The FACP is a central control panel that receives signals from various fire alarm devices and manages the operation of the fire alarm system. It allows for monitoring, troubleshooting, and resetting of the system. Therefore, in order to fully reset a fire alarm, it is essential to reset it from the FACP as well.

Dry standpipe systems bring water to various points in a building when used by:

Answer: Fire fighters
Dry standpipe systems are designed to provide fire fighters with a readily available water supply in a building. These systems are typically installed in buildings where there is no water source or where water supply may be limited. By connecting hoses to the standpipe system, fire fighters can quickly and efficiently access water at various points in the building to extinguish fires. The other options, such as the Fire Safety Director or building owner, may have roles in fire safety but they do not typically use the dry standpipe system to bring water to various points in the building.

What is the primary purpose of the fire alarm system?

Answer: Warn building occupants and transmit signals indicating a fire to the Fire Department.
The primary purpose of a fire alarm system is to warn building occupants and transmit signals indicating a fire to the Fire Department. This ensures the safety of the people inside the building by alerting them to the presence of a fire and allowing the Fire Department to respond quickly. The other options, such as being loud and annoying tenants or sounding the alarm during testing, do not accurately reflect the main purpose of a fire alarm system.

What does the  acronym PASS stand for?

Answer: Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep
The correct answer is Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep. This acronym is commonly used to remember the steps for operating a fire extinguisher. "Pull" refers to pulling the pin to break the tamper seal, "Aim" means aiming the nozzle or hose at the base of the fire, "Squeeze" is about squeezing the handle to release the extinguishing agent, and "Sweep" indicates sweeping the nozzle or hose from side to side to cover the entire fire area.

What do the firecodes that start with 906 deal with?

Answer: Portable fire extinguishers
Fire codes beginning with 906 specifically address portable fire extinguishers, offering comprehensive guidelines for their installation, maintenance, and utilization within buildings or various settings. These codes establish protocols to guarantee that fire extinguishers remain readily accessible, easily reached, and consistently in optimal working order. The primary objective is to ensure their effectiveness in swiftly suppressing small fires, averting potential escalation and promoting overall fire safety.
