    …ignoring childish bickering…

    A dutchman is a type of hose load for a speed lay.

    The two directions for ventilation are horizontal and vertical. The types include, mechanical (or forced), hydraulic and natural.

    A PPV fan is set at the lowest part of the structure on the side the wind is coming from. Another opening must be present above the area of fire for the smoke to be blown out of.

    Positive pressure blows smoke out while negative pressure sucks the smoke out.

    Only one FF is needed to deploy a minuteman load.

    A BLEVE stands for boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion. This is caused when a pressurized tank is heated, creating more pressure than the tank can withstand.

    I don’t know what the acronyms mean.

    Before forcing entry the structure may need to be ventilated. Also, try before you pry.

    I would check under the bed and in the closet during a search.


    Let me know how I did.

    Very good. Just some touching up...


    A "dutchman" is finish on a hose lay that makes it so the couplings of the LDH don't have to flip over when they pay off the hosebed.

    The BLEVE question was an interesting one. It's kinda tricky but they taught about it in one of my classes here at Oklahoma State and it was insightful, if you could stay awake through the professor droning on and on (Marc you know who I'm talking about). The relief valve on the tank, if any, will allow it to withstand pressures above it's rated capacity. On an LPG tank for example, the liquid inside is absorbing the heat, boiling, and blowing out through the relief valve. Researchers believe that when the liquid level in the tank gets too low, however, the tank begins absorbing the heat and a tank rupture occurs, causing the expanding vapor explosion. You got it right, I was just giving an deeper explaination.

    I havn't stopped learning and never will. I learn at my own pace.I am just the type of person who trains when I need to and relaxes every once in a while.I work three jobs on Ambulance service,retail and construction just to make ends I am not all "GUNG-HO FISTY" about the fire service(that is what gets your killed also i.e Tunnel Vision). I learned from my dads mistakes that he has made in the fire service and did things different. I have always been told that when you to train you "Practice Like You Play", and quite frankly I probabley train more than I should.I don't appreciate people talking smack and getting thier underwear all in a bunch for a little comment I made.You guys got to relize that that people make mistakes and they learn from them.Thanks for reading my post. I have no hard feelings against any comment you guys have mad, but it did upset me a little when I first read

    If I may say (And I think I can since they let me post ) You are not your father. He can have 1000 years, and you can watch that whole time. Even then, you do not have the EXPERIENCE he has first hand. You can hear about things up your ying-yang, but that's not experience, that's a story.

    Slappy,

    I am a third generation Firefighter. My dad is a Asst. Chief and my brother is a Lt on a Engine in a large metro department...that don't mean spit when it comes to MY knowledge. This whole thread was started for Explorers and Juniors who wanted to learn more and test their knowledge...and have a little fun now and then. In no way was it used to pick on anyone. It just go to the point to where I only had 2 people replying and it was taking up alot of time...and with Medic school I just don't have alot of that to spare. And its not a problem.
