In the Deck Safety & Deck General Module exam there is a question about firefighting that asks: Except in rare cases, it is impossible to extinguish
a shipboard fire by-
a) removing the oxygen
b) removing the heat
c) removing the fuel
d) interrupting the chain reaction
According to the fire triangle, and the fire tetrahedron, if any of these elements are removed a fire will be extinguished. I have not found any information on this in the online class or the book
Because the boat itself can be considered a fuel source making “removing the fuel” the correct response.
