For me this edition was a great thing to add to my collegiate library, not only as a fire fighter but also as a student in Fire Science Engineering. This book though it updates every few years keeps the primary focus in mind, fire fighter safety. This book is an invaluable resource for me and other firefighters. If you have the ability to buy it like I did you are lucky, many simply rent it for the term they need it for and simply return it as if it isn't important. This book unlike any other text I have used for my degree has been the most relevant because it is a great reference for research and collegiate work, but it is also an invaluable tool in my professional career as a firefighter.
This edition like I said before is divided into two volumes. Each volume is broken down into singular sections or chapters, these are even labeled with quick reference tabs which makes it even more easy to find what you are looking for. Personally at my department we have a latter edition that is filled with post it tabs in order to find guidelines that we have discussed, the book becomes over welling with post its sticking out every which direction.Read more ›
