Growing up, many boys and girls dreamed of being police officers or doctors or firefighters. They wanted to save the world, one arrest, surgery or house fire at a time! These kids got older and some of them shifted their dreams to being accountants or entrepreneurs or even CEOs. However, some of them continued to have those dreams and some of them even turned those dreams into realities. There are thousands of firefighters out there, but they had to pass an entrance exam before even attempting to become one. That is where we come into play!
If you are still dreaming of becoming a firefighter someday, then you have to take this quiz. The exam tests you on everything from emergency medical care to fire science basics and even math! Yeah, we probably scared some of you off with the mention of math! It's part of the exam, though, so are you up for the challenge? I mean, this quiz will only take you less than seven minutes to complete and in the end, you'll not only know the normal rate of breathing for an infant, but you'll also know if you are made to be a firefighter!
Half of all house fires begin in the kitchen. This is no surprise, though, as you cook there and have most of your appliances.
A Class D fire is a fire that uses combustible metal as its fuel source. Titanium, aluminum and magnesium are examples of combustible metals.

For children 1 to 5 years old, the normal rate of breathing is 20 to 30 breaths per minute. Babies under 6 months old have rates of 30 to 60 breaths per minute, and it goes down as children get older.
The normal respiration rate for an adult is 12 to 20 breaths per minute. If the rate goes below 12 or over 25, then it is considered abnormal.
The incident commander is the person who would develop incident objectives and manages all incident operations.
Petroleum-based oils and paints are common liquid-based fuel sources for Class B fires. Common flammable gases are butane and propane.
High blood pressure is called hypertension. Low blood pressure is called hypotension.
Every six months, the batteries should be changed in a smoke detector. The other answers will increase your chances of starting a fire!
You estimate the body surface area of an adult that has been burned by using multiples of 9. For the head, it is 4.5% for the front and 4.5% for the back, so a total estimate of 9%.
When under pressure, ammonia gas forms a clear liquid. It isn't flammable, but containers of ammonia may explode when exposed to high heat.
The resting heart rate for adults and adolescents is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. A lower heart rate means more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness.
5/20 would mean 5 divided by 20. That would equal 0.25.
For flammable liquids, they have a flashpoint below 100°F. For combustible liquids, they have a flashpoint at or above 100°F.
Cubic feet is determined by multiplying the length, width and height. That means 6 x 3 x 2, which equals 36.
Brain cells are very sensitive without oxygen. They can start dying within 4 to 6 six minutes without oxygen, which can cause brain damage and death.
14.3% of fires in 2016 were vehicle fires. 29.1% were residential, 8.3% were non-residential and 42.8% were outside fires.
CPR is needed when a child is not breathing. This infant is conscious, so you need to do procedures to remove the object, not bring back their breathing.

Any gas which does not undergo chemical reactions under a set of given conditions is an inert or noble gas. Examples of inert gases are helium, neon, xenon, radon and argon.
Keeping the doors closed during a fire stops the smoke and flames from spreading to other rooms. It also keeps the fire from gaining more oxygen and strength.
First responders would use the brachial artery to check the pulse. This artery is located on the inside of the upper arm between the elbow and the shoulder.
When adding fractions, you need a common denominator. That would be 12, so 3/4 changes to 9/12 and 2/3 changes to 8/12. Add them together and you get 17/12.
