2 Denver Fire Alarm Test Preparation Speed Drill © Ted Smitty Smith 2013

3 Instructions This drill is designed to help you practice finding things in the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code 2010 version. In order to receive the maximum benefit put the power point presention into presentation mode by clicking on the icon of projector screen in the lower right hand corner. When you are ready to begin, click on the slide and the timed drill will begin. Each question will remain in the screen for 2 minutes and then transition to the next question. Do not worry if you dont find the answer, just keep trying your best until the timed portion is complete. When the timed potion is complete a STOP sign will appear. Click on the slide again and the questions will be presented again without the timer and the answers will also be on the slides along with the code reference. The purpose of the drills is to help you get to the point that you can find the correct answer to our question in under 2 minutes. CLICK ON THE SLIDE TO CONTINUE
