Responding to Routine Emergencies
Frank G. Montagna
What may appear to be a routine emergency or an everyday response can sometimes end in deadly results. That's why it is so important to take the time to analyze and train for the calls that firefighters respond to most often, day after day.
This book is designed to heighten firefighters awareness of routine emergencies, to point out that a hazard exists at every emergency, and to open a discussion on the standard tactics used for them. It is a tool to help every firefighter minimize the dangers to the public and themselves.
