Front Cover
PennWell Books, 1997 - Technology & Engineering - 177 pages
Each day, firefighters throughout the country use numerous tools for extrication, forcible entry, extinguishment, rescue, ventilation, overhaul, salvage, and other functions associated with the “job.” Without the knowledge of how and when to use these tools, they become ineffective and a waste of space on the apparatus. Each chapter: • Identifies the tool and its standard uses • Discusses special tool uses and in-house modifications • Points out the limitations of each tool
Written for firefighters, company officers, chief officers, and anyone purchasing hand tools for the fire service.
