    How is propane NOT a class 2 fire? Is it not a flamable gas? This question really threw me off can someone please explain it to me what am I missing here?

  8. C Taylor says:

    i was taught not to use a lift in the case of a fire?

    • admin admin says:

      You should not. The question say all of the following should be done “EXCEPT”

    • Emma Carless says:

      10. In the event of a fire you should do all the following EXCEPT:

      a. Exit the building immediately using the nearest lift

      b. Call the fire brigade

      c. Operate the nearest fire alarm

      d. Tackle the fire if safe and trained to do so

      If you read the question again carefully it is asking which you should NOT do. Therefore a is correct which you picked as you should not use a lift, hope this helps.
