    When should a firefighter test his PASS.
    I would test it right when you get on shift,if thats what you mean. I believe you should test your PASS out before you leave on a run and do it at the station, so the problem can be fixed, or it can be replaced. If you find this problem out on a run you are going to have to get a different PASS which leaves a man w/o a proper SCBA. If you find this problem out in the structure or area.. well.. you see, I dont think you can fix it.

    good answer gx7e10 but they only require you to check them Before entering a hazardous or burning structure but as many people may think check them as much as possible

    I would have to say that it would be a frozen fluid on the lane of travel. Vehicles and ice do not mix very well. Right.

    im going to agree with Ativan and say ice. with all that water your flowing and the temp is freezing then theres going to be a lot of ice on the road, so your going to have to make sure that you take care of that before you leave the scene and the road oppens to drivers again. If theres anything else, let me know.

    First of all, the ice problem that was already mentioned. Also, other passing cars might hit the ice and spin out. That could cause serious problems for everyone operating at the scene. Also, crack the nozzle if you will be operating for an extended period to keep it from freezing. Frozen hose is not fun to deal with.

    Is this a trick question? Should you use foam on a car fire?

    the answer isAny water used will turn to ice and result in a hazard to cars using the roadway.

    all of your answers would be something to consider but the main concern at the time would be the on the road
