4.0 out of 5 stars Engine Company Ops
This book goes to the basic essence of engine company operations, fire suppression. It does so clearly and with clean-lined illustrations. From great over-views of fireground operations down to gate valve connnections, this text shows its strength in simplicity. If you want fire suppression theory or an in-depth study of tactics read Norman's Fire Officer's Handbook of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Balanced warning
While the shipping time was much faster than promised, HOW HARD IS IT to include the total price on the invoice? Despite 2 attempts to get a detailed invoice for reimbursement/ tax purposes, none has been provided. A customer could create their own invoice, but this one is not willing to risk audit and jail time because the shipper doesn't follow good business...

3.0 out of 5 stars Balanced warning, June 18, 2012
This review is from: Engine Company Fireground Operations (Paperback)
While the shipping time was much faster than promised, HOW HARD IS IT to include the total price on the invoice? Despite 2 attempts to get a detailed invoice for reimbursement/ tax purposes, none has been provided. A customer could create their own invoice, but this one is not willing to risk audit and jail time because the shipper doesn't follow good business practices.

The text itself is fairly straight forward, perhaps with a bit of East Coast bias. Not completely up to date on detailed technical matters (ie: hi-rise pack vs garden pack vs Cleveland roll vs driveway drop), but certainly a great introduction to the material.

If you value true customer service from a human rather than a 'bot, avoid any version of 'SharpTextBooks': as in "s_r_books" & "Sharp_books", emails to which were answered by the parent company.

Next time I'll pay full price for a text fulfilled by the publisher: the small savings weren't worth the lingering headache.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a blockbuster by any means, March 28, 2009
This review is from: Engine Company Fireground Operations (Paperback)
This book, as a companion to Ladder Company Fireground Operations, falls short due to the lack of polish. The relevant updating falls short, and they did not include photographs. Illustrations are good, but today's firefighter will look at this book and want something more. It is a decent background for Engine Company SOP's, but is by no means the "Bible of Fireground Operations."
