Fire Officer's Handbook of Tactics, 3/e, software study helper, Knightlite Software, 2007
The basic strategies of modern day firefighting have not changed. They encompass the basics of protecting life, confining the fire, and extinguishing it. What has changed is the tactics employed by firefighters, along with the newest advances in technology, that allow firefighters to fight fires more efficiently and in totally different ways than how fires were fought 30 years ago.
John Norman's Fire Officer's Handbook of Tactics, 3/e, presents fire officers a way to evaluate problems, as well as developing solutions, that will fit the situations that firefighters may face, with or without a large number of firefighters at their side.
Fire Officer's Handbook Of Tactics Study Helper Version 3.0 is a Flashcard\Multiple-Choice Test for firefighters based on Fire Engineering's Fire Officer's Handbook of Tactics 3rd Edition. Tests can be taken on-screen or can be printed out in a variety of ways
The Questions - There are 1067 questions in the registered software package spanning 20 chapters based on Fire Engineering's Fire Officer's Handbook of tactics 3rd Edition. There is also a Terminology section containing 157 definitions.
Knightlite has created a new “graphic user interface” (GUI) that allows users to utilize their computer in such a way as to enhance their learning experience. This allows them to learn the massive amount of information required by certification and promotional exams at a much quicker rate, and in a more enjoyable way than traditional study techniques.
The most notable feature in the new Code II GUI is the addition of an Animated Agent who can actually read the questions out loud to you. The Agent reads the question to you and waits for you to answer. Or set the software to “Presentation Mode” and the software will self-run, just like a movie, reading a question, giving you the answer, and then moving to the next question. You can interrupt the Agent at any time by selecting an answer. The Agent will then tell you if you were correct or incorrect, tell you the correct answer if you were incorrect, and then move on to the next question. A 1500 question software program runs for over 8 full hours in the “Presentation Mode.” The Agent can also be turned off and hidden at any time.
