Written to include all the minimum requirements of the 2008 NFPA professional qualifications standards 1001 and 472 and beyond, Fire Engineering's Handbook for Firefighter I and II lays out the combined wisdom and experience of more than 40 accomplished fire service professionals from around the United States -- the only collection of its kind in one book!

Edited by Glenn Corbett, Fire Engineering magazine's technical editor, this new text is aimed at giving readers access to practical, real-world, time-tested knowledge and skills and being a trusted resource for instructors and students alike.

Fire Engineering's Handbook for Firefighter I and II is a highly-readable and thorough guide that engages the student and satisfies the needs of the instructor by covering basic fire topics and addressing techniques and issues that are relevant to the firefighter candidate. Inside these pages the instructor will find expert advice from the nationally-known leaders from Fire Engineering magazine and FDIC.

With full-color throughout, at-a-glance information, color photos, and detailed illustrations, readers will easily make their way through our book without being overwhelmed or distracted by unnecessary elements. The 1,200-page handbook is bound in a hardcover for durability. Inside each book, we've tucked a Student Resource Disk that contains insightful interviews with the authors and a glossary of key terms. We've also included with the handbook a sturdy wire-bound Skill Drills book that will take you step-by-step through more than 245 skills.

If you're ready for a new approach to training Firefighter I and II, look no further than the leaders in fire service education: Fire Engineering.
