There is a reason this is considered the "bible" of firefighting. IFSTA has been doing it longer then others and the quality of material shows it. As an instructor I've used and reviewed the other companies out there and I always go back to IFSTA. This book is an excellent choice for those getting into the fire service as well as those in the service looking to brush up. Highly recommend.

This book covers the basics as we teach new personnel in our fire agency. This is the bible we use for fire fighting at the basic functional level. You can delve deeper into some of the topics if desired, but this gives the basic recruit the knowledge and ability/practice to do the job safely and efficiently. Specialize later, but get the basics down first. I always learn something from the classes I teach, and this is the required text for my fire classes.

Much bigger book than I thought, however my son can't put it down. This book has everything about firefighting from day 1 to getting hired. Great book!

I begun my volunteer firefighter training recently. The training is introductory in nature. This book helps to fill in the gaps and accelerate my knowledge in many aspects of firefighting. For such a complete book, the price is more than worth it.

This is by far the most concise textbook for firefighting. Every respectable aspect is covered. The quality the in the literature by far surpasses everything that I have seen out in the market. Well, worth the price - you won't disagree.

The essential manual for beginning fire fighters. I am getting back into the fire service after a 4 year absence and this manual will be added to my library of previous versions. Much larger (physically) than previous versions and more information.This is an investment. Great reference book throughout your career.

Everything one would want to know about fighting fire, equipment usage, etc. Great for the student or "old timer." Me...I'm just learning but have an interest that should help. I'm WFF qualified on a small all-volunteer department in a rural environment. Lots of EMS but few fire calls other than wildland. It's a bit pricey but well worth it!

This book covers basic and advanced concepts and skills of firefighting. This book has a much more in dept chapter on fire science than other books do. I know fire academies across the country use this book as wel as fire department promotional tests. if you want to be a firefighter, and you plan on going to a fire school, you should have this book to read/reference.
