A very good book but Mr. Coleman relates a little too much about his department (Toledo Fire Department)when providing examples. I understand that's the way they do it in Toledo, but in other areas of the country things operate differently.

Format: Hardcover
I have been a Fire Officer for many years, and for the past 20 years trained officer candidate's on Assessment Type Exams. There is no more powerful book, in simple terms, on how your job should be done. There are too many variations and not enough "exacting" way to do your job as an Attack Officer, a Backup/Water Supply Officer, a Search and Rescue Officer, and a Ventilation Officer. Serious Study of this book prevents freelancing, confusion on the fire grounds, and most importantly pushes one much higher on an assessment style promotion list. It works best in a paid department, however, position assignments make it also ideal for volunteer companies. It may require some small changes to fit the NFA Incident Management System. As a Chief Officer, your companies operate much more efficiently when they are organized, and know what you want. I also think John Norman's book fills in the specifics of each firefighters duties. Both Books are excellent. A must have, and must read for any serious fire officer candidate.

this book on Incident Management for Fire Officers was written by a 32 yr. veteran Fire Chief in Toledo. The book covers the Incident Management System and how it is used to manage a fireground. The system is likened to a tool belt containing different tools to use at different fire operations. Some may be used at operations some not but they are there if needed. Topics of Command , Finance, Logistics, Operations and Planning. The Command Staff such as Public Information Officers, Safety and Liaison. These topics are covered in depth with scenarios included in each chapter. There are chapters on Benchmarks and precise Communication of operations is stressed. Safety of civilians and the firefighting force is mentioned throughout. Though the emphasis of the book is on IMS used in a fire in a Private Residence and covers procedures in Toledo, it is a thorough examination which can be applied to any jurisdiction and is a nice addition to an important fire service topic. Recommended.

This is a well written book that puts together the pieces of firefighting to bring the reader a better overall undestanding of the "big picture". Lots of examples and real-world scenarios. Our department uses this book for promotion exam material for Driver/Engineers. A good first step into Incident Commend for new officers, and deep enough for the seasoned Chief.

The literature was very clear and to the point. Well written and job-related. I felt that it could be used as a great learning tool.... A resource to study. Short enough to keep your attention but long enough to gain something from it.

Has alot of good info, but there is a lot of rambling. There needs to be a proof reader imployed by the publisher. There are numberous mistakes with simple grammer . Spell check worked , but the wrong words were chosen.
