    FWDbuff and myself are what you call "Old School." When we were rookies there wasn't the Internet , google or Facebook Friends. We had to look up our answers in "Books" or ask fellow rookies where to go for the answers. Today's rookies have the world at their fingers and they post their questions on the site for others to answer. I'm sorry that Monkeybiz did your homework and if I were you I'd do my own work. I'm also with CaptOldTimer and I'd show you the door.

There's not much in your profile.....I bet you are another young kid who thinks the world owes you everything and/or thinks its ok to take the easy way out of everything.

      When I was a Junior if I had flat out asked the questions, I would probably have received about 20 more (and harder) questions to provide written answers for.

      I totally agree with this and what others have said to this guy.

      Why should we older guys do this rookies home work?

      What is he going to get from it, a passing grade maybe? He will not have the sense of looking and digging for the answers. He will probably go through his fd career not looking or researching the answers and will always want it given to him the easy way.

      I don't know from what department he is with, but I can tell you he wouldn't make it in a large career one.

      The recruit classes I have done and had control of, he would have a hard time making it.


      We never give good grades. If you get them, You have EARNED it yourself!


      It's been a long time for me, but I can still give you the handlines and master stream formulas I learned many years ago.

      Once you master something it stays with you forever.

        And..........

        There are those that think that I am as old and Grumpy as my photo would suggest. Wrong. Grumpier......... And this is one of those things that cause it. I am, or have been, in no particular order, a Rookie Volunteer, a Rookie Career Firefighter, a Rookie Wildland Firefighter, a Rookie ARFF Firefighter, a Line Officer, a Chief, a Fire Inspector, and a whole lot more that I won't burn electrons over......... In each Position, I had Questions that I had to answer, and I had to find the answers on my own. It's not "Cool", it's not Tradition, it's Common Sense. If you want the answer to a Question, you have to do the Legwork yourself.......... If someone honestly has exhausted all the resources at their disposal, I'll help. But use those Resources BEFORE Asking.......

              I would readily help someone to came to me for help in the station, versus someone who was given an assignment to research these answers, and instead asks for forum members to answer the questions for him. He even admits it...

                Part of pasing the test is proving that you can find the answers yourself

                  Utility rope is reusable, life line is used once, then it becomes utility rope. there is another issue of type, but I don't remember, look it up


                  Rescue rope must be dynamic, meaning it will stretch somewhat under a load and absorb shock. Utility rope is static, meaning it will not stretch under a load. Also the composition of the rope differs. And yes, used rescue rope can be used as utility rope.

                  What do Fire Investigators Carry? My dept, coffee, donuts, and a can of chew. I don't know what they are looking for.. a camera maybe?

                  Watch Backdraft.
                  Epic Fail sir. Don't know if you are leading this guy astray just to mess with him, or if you honestly believe this.

                  Most life safety rope, or rope used in a rescue operation will be static kern-mantle. Dynamic rope is used primarily by the rock climbing community. Due to it's elastic nature it has been deemed by most spec ops to be difficult to work with in rescue situations.

                  You don't want to fall or absorb a shock with rescuing someone, littering a patient, or picking someone off. Imagine creating a high-line with that much sag in the line, wouldn't be practical and you'd probably get stuck in the middle.

                  The argument can be made for Dynamic during very specific rescue situations, but I believe you will find that most places will be able to use static in those very situations that would justify having a dynamic bag.

                  I can appreciate if you are messing with the OP, as he should look this information up rather than try to get the info off of a forum (basic information at that)

                    heat202: Fuel Ratio refers to the ratio of fuel (gasoline) to lubricant (petroleum or synthetic oils) that are used to power two cycle engines that are not "Oil Injected". At a ratio of 50 : 1 the usual blend is 2.5 oz of lubricant to 1 gallon of fuel. Lubricants used are specially formulated NOT to cause "carbon bridging" of the gap in the spark plug thus shorting out the plug and shutting down the engine. The higher ratios (50:1) suggest synthetic lubricant (like Optimol) while the lower ratios (32:1, 25:1) suggest petroleum based oils. The air and fuel mixture leaving the carburator passes through a "flutter valve" that closes due to crankcase pressure when the piston is in the power stroke. Partway through the powerstroke, the exhaust valve is opened and exhaust gasses are vented from the cylinder. This allows the slightly compressed fuel/air mixture in the crankcase to be forced into the cylinder, flushing the burned gasses out the exhaust valve. Slightly after the bottom of the power/exhaust stroke, both intake and exhaust valves are closed causing the fresh fuel/air mixture to be compressed and readied for ignition at the top of the stroke. It also creates a slightly negative pressure in the crankcase drawing in a fresh fuel and air supply. The heated surfaces in the crankcase, vaporize the gasoline portion of the mixture leaving behind the lubricant on bearing and piston sleeve surfaces thus providing lubrication to critical engine parts. This is probably more than you wanted to know, but it points out theneed to follow manufacturers recommendations concerning the type and amount of lubricant needed in the "Fuel Ratio".

                        No to both here. Rescue rope can be used continuously unless; it takes a shock load, gets damaged or past your department's service life. Be sure to inspect and clean as needed after each use.

                        Static kernmantle rope is used for most rescue situations, not dynamic rope. Dynamic rope is used sometimes if you are expecting a fall... like tower or rock climbing.
