50 True/False questions

  1. The Placards usually appear onCommercial vehicle operators are required to carry documents that list the contents of their shipment. These
    documents are commonly referred to as ______ ________and serve as a valuable resource to help first responders identify the materials involved as well as the associated hazards and protective measures if exposures occur.

          

  2. level 6: toxic materials and infectious substance.These materials may cause spontaneous combustion or increase the intensity of a fire. Examples include
    bromine or calcium hypochlorite (bleach).

          

  3. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has developedpesticides and some other chemical substances to
    display warning labels on the exterior of the container to provide awareness of the harmful contents.

          

  4. Resources that help an officer make sound decisions include the agency'sERP and standard operating procedures (SOP), and the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG).

    parks, business districts, agricultural areas, and residential neighborhoods

          

  6. weaponized chemical hazards are usuallyassociated with acts of terrorism or war

          

  7. Smell, touch, and taste are considered"high risk" and should never be used to identify a hazardous material.

          

  8. Materials such as ______ and _____ gases cannot use
    the "DANGEROUS" placard.
    1. explosives
    2.Toxic

          

  9. If the officer cannot identify the hazardous material's specific name:officers may have to examine documents/shipping papers or
    conduct interviews with the transport driver or facility staff.

          

  10. The main objectives are
    to isolate the area without
    portable containers, fixed containers, and transportation containers.

  12. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) defines a hazardous material (hazmat) asmost vehicles transporting hazardous materials to display placards that describe the class of
    hazardous materials on board.

          

  13. There is usually a direct correlation between the size of the container and theportable containers, fixed containers, and transportation containers.

          

  14. Be mindful that the absence of a placard, label, or other warning does not mean thathazardous materials are not present

  16. shipping papersare materials that are neither solid nor liquid at ordinary temperatures; they are contained under
    pressure. They may be flammable, non-flammable, poisonous, or corrosive. Some examples of potentially
    hazardous gases are acetylene, hydrogen, and anhydrous ammonia.

          

  17. Class 8: corrosive substancesMaterials in this category include acids, solvents, or other materials that may cause irreversible damage to
    human tissues.

          

  18. Industrial chemical hazards are typically encountered inassociated with acts of terrorism or war

          

  19. Class 9: miscellaneous dangerous goodsMaterials in this category include acids, solvents, or other materials that may cause irreversible damage to
    human tissues.

          

  20. level 4: flammable solidsThese materials burn in the presence of an ignition source. Some examples are gasoline, diesel fuel, and acetone.

          

  21. level 2: Gasesare materials or devices designed to release energy very rapidly. Emergency responders should consider all explosives to be extreme hazards when they are involved
    in or near a fire. Some examples of explosive materials are dynamite, black powder, and small arms ammunition.

          

  22. Sight and sound are considered"low risk" and can help officers identify a hazmat from a safe distance. Officers
    use these senses to pay attention for:
    • pressure release
    • smoke and/or fire
    • liquids, gas leaks, or vapor cloud
    • condensation on pipelines or containers
    • chemical reactions
    • mass casualties

          

  23. CBRNE chemical threats include bothassociated with acts of terrorism or war

          

  24. a number from 0 to 4 indicates the material's relative hazard with0 indicating no hazard
    4 indicating the highest hazard.

          

  25. Containers that store contents under pressure, such as propane or oxygen tanks, can presentadditional hazards, like explosions and vapor releases.

          

  26. Anything that holds TWO or MORE classes of hazardous materials must display theClass 1: explosives
    Class 2: gases
    Class 3: flammable liquids (and combustible liquids)
    Class 4: flammable solids
    Class 5: oxidizers and organic peroxides
    Class 6: toxic materials and infectious substance.

    Class 9: miscellaneous dangerous goods

          

  27. One example of a facility document is theMaterial Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

          

  28. To identify the hazardous materialare required to carry documents that list the contents of their shipment.

          

  29. MSDS are required to bestructure and its use.
