    41230, the answer to number 1 is high pressure and low pressure, I think. The answer to number 4 is that laminated glass has a layer of plastic over it so the glass doesn't shatter and go everywhere. Tempered glass is heat treated to increase strength and flexibility.
    These are my opinions, not those of my career department, my volunteer company, or my affiliates. And by the way, I'm not a Junior.

    The Answers:

    What are the 3 types of airbags? low pressure, medium pressure, high pressure

    How many airbags van you stack? 2

    What is packaging? (according to IFSTA) wounds have been bandaged, fracures splinted, and the pt. body has been immobilized to reduce further injury.

    What is the difference between laminated and tempered glass?
    -Laminated: aka Safety glass, is 2 sheets of glass that are bonded
    with a sheet of plastic. The glass sandwiches the plastic
    -Tempered: is glass that will fracture and the cracks will spread throughout the entire plate. Most commonly used on side windows of cars

    Define the different types of Collapse?

    Pancake-is a simultaneous failure of 2 exterior walls causeing the floors to collapse one on top of the other-least likely to have void spaces

    V-shaped-occurs when the outer wall remains intact and the flors/roof fail in the middle- good chance of void spaces

    Lean-to-outer wall fail while the other remains intact and the roof/floors collapse on top- great likely hood of voids

    Cantilever- occurs when the side wall of a multistory building collapse leaving the floors attached and exposed- good chance for voids

    The question is referring to the area (as in distance) between the downed power lines & any personel. The rule of thumb for the area to keep away from downed power lines is a distance equal to one span between 2 poles.

    When dealing with ANY situation where power lines are involved be sure to treat all lines as if they are energized. Adding to your answer, keep all people (civilians & emergency personel) approx. 1 span between poles away from the power lines.

    Stupidly, I have walked right into a live line and didn't get shocked. I was told it wasn't live but it was.

    WAHOOOOO! finally something Im good at. OK, for the water rescue, I`m a lifeguard, and 3 guidelines are, visually assess vic., determine rescue type( go pull him up, extend rescue device, how are you going to get vic into water craft[if available]) and finally, treat injury(ies) as seen necessary. Elevator rescue,: keep vics calm, determine if any inj., dont fall, , open doors above floor they are stuck in, open hatch, remove vic(s)

    What, you afraid they're going to learn something?

    As one who was their position for more than my fair share, the more knowledge they have, the better off they are!

    Oh and by the way Pup-GFDSlappyRob. No one was picking on anyone you should try reading the thread. I got several emails asking for more questions.

    I got socks that have more Firefighting experience than you. So its time to do your homework "Jr" and learn some respect.

    Oh sorry I forgot your a "Chief" LOL
