Unit 3 Quiz: Watch Outs and LCES | S-130 Firefighter Training (Online Component) 2008 v2

  1. Identify a fire behavior that is a common denominator in most tragic incidents.
    • Tragedies occur on smaller fires or on isolated portions of larger fires.

  2. As a product of years of experience in countless wildland fires, your Incident Response Pocket Guide (IRPG) lists a set of situations you should watch out for. How many situations that shout "Watch out!" are listed in the IRPG?
    • 18

  3. The "Watch-out!" situations are intended to warn you of some very dangerous conditions. Identify THREE "Watch-out!" situations from the "Watch-out!" list.
    • Uninformed on strategy, tactics, and hazards
    • Constructing line without safe anchor point
    • Wind increases or changes direction

  4. One way to learn the "Watch-out!" situations is to know what the "Watch-out!" situations are not. All of the following are "Watch-out!" situations, EXCEPT
    • fire burning uphill away from the black.

  5. If followed sequentially, the 10 Standard Fire fighting Orders are designed to keep firefighters safe on an incident. All of the following are Standard Fire fighting Orders, EXCEPT
    • Maintain engines, radios, and camp gear.

  6. LCES is an acronym representing the key operational components of the 10 Standard Fire Orders. Let's see how good your memory is. What do the letters in the LCES acronym stand for?
    • Lookouts, communications, escape routes, safety zones

  7. Escape routes should provide the quickest possible path to the safety zone. Identify FOUR travel barriers that could affect escape time to a safety zone.
    • Hills
    • Loose soils
    • Rocks
    • Vegetation

  8. There is more than one kind of safety zone you can escape to. Identify THREE examples of safety zones.
    • The burn
    • Natural areas
    • Constructed areas

  9. When no natural safety zones are at hand, you can construct your own. Identify TWO methods you can use to construct safety zones.
    • Engage mechanized equipment
    • Burn out an area

  10. When considering the size of safety zones, your Incident Response Pocket Guide (IRPG) has specific distance recommendations for how far to separate firefighters from the nearest fuels. Those specific distance recommendations are based on the assumption that there
    • is no slope and no wind.
