The Engine Company

The Engine Company

John Salka

In his book, Battalion Chief Salka, a nationally recognized speaker and author with years of service in several career and volunteer departments, looks at both the similarities and differences in the engine company operations practiced by fire departments throughout the United States and discusses in detail the equipment, staffing, and operations of engine company firefighters at structural fires and emergencies in urban, suburban, and rural settings.

In this book, Salka teaches readers:

  • The abilities and limitations of engine companies, depending on equipment, staffing, and water supply
  • To execute the tactical missions of engine companies
  • The importance of mastering engine company functions for successful fire attack

The Engine Company is an invaluable resource for company officers (particularly those with responsibility for engine company operations), firefighters who want a better understanding of the functions of the engine company, and training officers and instructors.
