With superior teaching and learning tools, the first, second, and third editions of Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills set a new benchmark in fire fighter training.
The Enhanced Third Edition presents the same exceptional content with the inclusion of the latest research-based data coming out of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), addressing the areas of fire suppression, ventilation, fire attack and foam, search and rescue, and fire behavior.
User-Friendly Content: Along with the inclusion of the latest evidence-based practices and data, the Enhanced Third Edition covers the entire spectrum of the 2013 Edition of NFPA 1001: Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, as well as the requirements for Operations level responders in the 2013 Edition of NFPA 472: Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous materials/ Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents. From fire suppression to hazardous materials to emergency medical care, this one volume covers all of Fire Fighter I and Fire Fighter II training.
As a result of changes in modern building construction and furnishing materials, today’s fires release energy faster, reach flashover potential sooner, may reach higher temperatures, and are much more likely to become ventilation-limited than building fires of even a few years ago. To address these critical evolutions, the Enhanced Third Edition offers completely revised chapters on the following topics:
New graphs and illustrations are added to highlight key points of the research findings. In addition, the Enhanced Third Edition continues to offer exceptional teaching and learning benefits:
