Fundamentals Of Fire Fighter Skills Evidence-Based Practices / Edition 3 available in Paperback
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are pleased to bring you the third edition of Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills, the next step in the evolution of Fire Fighter I and Fire Fighter II training. With superior teaching and learning tools, the first and second editions of Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills set a new benchmark in fire fighter training. Now the NFPA, IAFC, and Jones & Bartlett Learning are proud to raise the bar for the fire service again.
The 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 requirements.
The training program also includes coverage of the UL/NIST research studies and experiments on fire behavior and techniques for ventilation, fire suppression, and search and rescue as a result of the changes in modern building construction and furnishing materials. As a result of these changes, 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.
