Excellent basic firefighter training manual. It was not used when I first went through the training academy and wasn't when I returned for re-certification. I bought a copy for my personal library. I refer to it more than just a few times during the year. Firefighting is one professional that training and eduction never stop and for me that includes my days off as well.
