Fire Inspector: Principles and Practice, Revised Enhanced 1/e


International Association of Fire Chiefs, National Fire Protection Association, William Jenaway

The Complete Fire Inspector I and II Training Solution!

Fire inspectors need to know how to interpret and apply national and local codes and standards in the office and in the field. Fire Inspector: Principles and Practice is designed to prepare fire inspectors to ensure the highest standards of fire and life safety in their communities.

This textbook meets and exceeds the job performance requirements for level I and II fire inspectors from Chapters 4 and 5 of NFPA 1031, Standard for Professional Qualifications for Fire Inspector and Plan Examiner, 2014 Edition.

Fire Inspector: Principles and Practice is built on a solid foundation of the basics: building construction, fire growth, and types of occupancies. This fundamental knowledge is presented in a concise, understandable writing style that is easy to digest and recall. The solid foundation of fire and building knowledge then branches out to show the fire inspector how abstract concepts and codes will be concretely applied on a daily basis. This is the text that truly prepares fire inspectors for the real world.

Understanding the needs of today’s students and their diverse learning styles is a major focal point of Fire Inspector: Principles and Practice. Teaching tools for these students include:

  • Scenario Based Learning - You are the Fire Inspector and Fire Inspector in Action case studies are found in each chapter to encourage critical thinking skills.
