Fundamentals Of Firefighter Skills Book Cover

The fourth edition of Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills and Hazardous Materials Response was significantly updated to better serve Fire Fighter I and II instructors and students. Not only were the underpinnings of the textbook and curriculum shifted from the NFPA 472 standard to the professional qualifications standard of NFPA 1072, but the overall organization and design of the material were also updated accordingly. The program now has five distinct sections: Fire Fighter I, Fire Fighter II, Hazardous Materials Awareness, Hazardous Materials Operations, and Hazardous Materials Operations: Mission Specific. This new organization will allow you the flexibility to teach your Fire Fighter I and II course(s) exactly the way you wish. The first twenty-one chapters set the foundation for Fire Fighter I knowledge and understanding. The next seven chapters encompass the Fire Fighter II section. With this core Fire Fighter I and II knowledge covered, the final nine chapters address awareness level, operations level, and operations mission-specific requirements.
