Fire Inspector: Principles And Practice available in Paperback
A 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 Revised First Edition 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.
