What is kept in the loose-leaf binder? (5)copies of HFD Survey,Supplemental Info.Sheet,Mobility Impaired List,Elevator Oper.Inst.Elevator Diagream,Emerg. Contact ohone list and (5) sets of floor plans.
What is the primary means of escape for building occupants? Stairwells - They are the only means of access to the fire floors.
In the past, FF were allowed to send unmanned elevators back to the recall floor by turning the Phase II "OFF" as they leave elevator.Do NOT try this unless... The PRE-FIRE plan specifically states that this operation is available.This may cause elevator doors to close and shut down and mechanic will have to reset sys.
It is essential that stairwell doors remain closed, unless... standpipe is used for fire attack.
FF have tendency to leave stairwell doors open at the lobby level, why is it important to keep doors closed? Can effect smoke movement,the open door can have a reverse smoke stack effect.
Fire Code requires that stairwell doors should be unlocked at what level? At every 5th level.
There are 3 basic methods of smoke removal in high rise building...what are they? HVAC-automatic/manual.(preferred) Horizontal-through doors/windows.(second prefferred) Vertical-Stairwell as a chimmney.
What is HVAC and what is the chief concern? Heating Ventalation Air Conditioning.-HVAC chief concern is the spread of smoke to to flors above and below fire floor.
Fire Pumps in older building may rely on Gravity Tanks for pressure, most modern building have system pressure. Because time is of the esscence and there is a high failure rate of FDC and standpipe riser, what is EO to do.. E/O should hook up to the FDC in preparation to pump if nesscesary with a reduntant line laid to seperate FDC.
Only newer buildings require by law to have sprinklers, many older building have been retrofitted. Sprinklers are usually supplied through standpipe risers or have a seperate riser and FDC.In modern buildings where are the sprinkler valves? In the stairwell, but some are in loop system and may require shutting off at 2 differnt locaitons.
There are three classes of Standpipe Systems, What type is intended for FF use only. Type I -(2)2 1/2" outlets with out a hose.
What type of standpipe system is a combo that provides outlets with 1 1/2" reducer? Type III - for FF and civilian use.
What is Type II standpipe System? porvides 1 1/2" outlets with hose and is intended for civilian use only.
Why should FF know if standpipe system is PVR or non-PVR? Pressure Regulating Valve (PVR) if specific information is not know about how much pressure is allowed by PVR then FF should assume a max of 100psi.
What was the PVR madated pressure for 2 1/2" with smooth bore? And what was it for fog nozzle? Smooth 2 1/2" - 65 to 100psi plus 5psi per floor Fog -175psi plus 5 psi per floor.
When PRV pressure is unknown, what is the calaculation assumed... 100 psi plus 6 psi per floor.
When is Tandum pumping nesessary on High-Rise? To pump water above 40 stories (roughly 300psi) a single engine cannot supply the needed pressure. A two engine, tandem pump operation is needed.
Tandum Pumping:One Engine will reverse lay 3" high-pressure hose from the FDC.Second Engine (Supply)will 100' of dual lines at what pressure? 250psi into high-pressure engine.
When High Pressure pump operations (over 250psi) what are the precautions made.... Remove all civilian and FF from a zone of 50' on each side of hoseline, Secure supply line with rope,connect high pressure supply on the opposite side of panel so EO work relatively safe.
How many volts does lighting system in high-rise opertate, that can be potential danger to FF's... 280 Volts. Typically 1 electrial room per floor with 1 or 2 circuits.And when power being cut off may trigger generators, the floor may remain charged when thought power is out.
In the Transformer Vault, electricity is transformed down to a lower voltage and sent to switchgear room, which is main electrical room, near heavy mechanical equipment, although reduced what can the voltage get up to in swichgear room? 13,800 Volts. FF must use caution on sprinklered buildings which this could result in energized water.
What is a Shunt trip device? Kills the power in eleveator hoist just before spinkler opens. This is to protect elevator or FF from energized water.But, this can cause elevator to become dead and that could trap FF or occupants.
Computers are protected by FM-200 gaseous agent, alarms and flashing lights warn FF and occupants before activated, What is the hazardous function of FM-200? FM-200 depletes oxygen, but can also possible re-ignition of fire by introduction oxygen into the room.
When should HMRT HazMat Response Team be called during High-Rise Incident? Many mechanical rooms, chillers and Freon other cylinder, oxygen acetylen tanks, ect. are present in building HMRT should be called.
