Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills, Fourth Edition provides the complete Fire Fighter I and Fire Fighter II training solution. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are pleased to bring you product enhancements and features that ensure student comprehension and enhanced critical thinking.
The Fourth Edition features the same exceptional content, along with the latest research, standards and technology, including the latest research-based data from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Understanding that today's fires release energy faster, reach flashover potential sooner, and may reach higher temperatures than building fires of the past is critically important for new and seasoned fire fighters. This foundational knowledge is covered extensively, in addition to recent data identifying the higher rate of physical and mental health issues in the fire service than the general population. Information relating to fire fighter health and safety has been revised and updated to include behavioral and physical health awareness topics and statistics.
The new edition meets and exceeds the performance requirements in the latest edition of NFPA1001: Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications. Along with a new design, the structure and organization of the Fourth Edition has been completely updated to allow you the flexibility to teach your Fire Fighter I and II courses exactly the way you wish.
The Fourth Edition delivers:
A split-level table of contents with distinct sections for Fire Fighter Level I and Level II chapters
Full coverage of all JPRs and competencies required within the 2017 edition of NFPA
Updated research and statistics, with reference information, is included to ensure evidence-based recommendations and protocols
A new and improved Skill Drill design with clear, comprehensive visual summaries
An updated art program featuring new photos and illustrations
