    Immediately notify the IC
  45. The NYC Building Code requires lightweight constructed spaces between the ceiling and the floor above or the ceiling and roof above to be divided into approximately equal areas of?

    An exterior Atttack

    An additional engine
  55. Nozzle firefighters should use what method when in a lightweight construction building due to the increased potential for collapse?

    Extent of the fire. (light, medium, heavy) Location of the fire (top floor, cellar, void spaces, etc.)  Volume of smoke and fire (light, medium, or heavy)  Smoke action (pushing, twisting, or rolling under pressure)
  62. In lightweight construction, when is the best time to gather information on the specific type of support systems in lightweight buildings
    The construction phase
  63. Whenever lightweight construction is discovered, units shall:
    •  Follow all applicable procedures put forth in the BISP Manual. 
    • Enter the building/occupancy into eCIDS.  Conduct site familiarization drills during each phase of construction, ex. Framing, HVAC installation, finished plasterboard; this could enhance critical information to be entered in to eCIDS.
