New here & new to fire academy. A few Q's?
Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and have been in the fire academy p/t for about 2-1/2 months now. I hope this is the correct room to post this question. I'm looking for any help regarding my upcoming fire academy performance objective test (Tool Identification), if anyone would be so kind to suggest some study material, it would be much appreciated, thank you.
I've been looking all over the internet for detailed information about all the tools, nozzles, equipment, appliances, and their specific uses, sizes, maintenance procedures, etc. but have not had much luck.
My textbook covers very little regarding the specifics of each tool, example:
The textbook says the San Francisco Hook is a push/pull tool used for forcible entry. But my instructor will ask me, what are range in sizes? what is it's specific use? why the 90 degree serrated edge? what are the care/maintenance procedures? The list goes on but I think you get idea. This goes for everything on the engine.
