In the 20th Edition of The National Fire Protection Association Handbook, like the previous editions you will find all the standards and guidelines that govern what firefighters can and can't do on a fire ground and in relation to the fire service. In relation to this book you will also find all guidelines that fire fighters are expected to follow in their professional careers. This edition is particularly good in that it includes these in a two-volume presentation, which allows for a better organization.

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.

These books are hard back, came packaged well and on time. They are a requirement for a class my husband is taking for his career. They are everything you need to know about buildings and their construction. Well explained and comes with colorful tabs to mark the chapters for easy maneuvering. I do recommend this company and this book

These books were purchased for my nephew to help him continue in his job, and they are perfect for that purpose. They are very comprehensive. The reason for the review is to praise Fari at the supplier, Acamedia, who helped us solve a major problem with the shipment and delivery. Somehow, the address that I provided to Amazon was relayed incompletely to Acamedia, followed by further mishandling by the actual shipping company, UPS and some Post Office personnel. This caused my nephew to receive the books weeks late. I immediately contacted Acamedia, and I was fortunate enough to be assisted by Fari, who responded quickly, and obviously cared about what was going on. Even though his company was not at fault, he was willing to do anything he could to make good on our purchase. My nephew now has the volumes and is putting them to good use. Without Fari, this might not have been possible.
