Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills

Front Cover
Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2008 - Education - 1068 pages
With the release of the Second Edition, Jones and Bartlett Publishers, the National Fire Protection Association®, and the International Association of Fire Chiefs have joined forces to raise the bar for the fire service once again.Safety Is Fundamentals!The Second Edition features a laser-like focus on fire fighter injury prevention, including a dedicated chapter on safety. Reducing fire fighter injuries and deaths requires the dedicated efforts of every fire fighter, of every fire department, and of the entire fire community working together. It is with this goal in mind that we have integrated the 16 Fire Fighter Life Safety Initiatives developed by the National Fallen Fire Fighter Foundation into Chapter 2, Fire Fighter Safety. In most of the chapters, actual National Fire Fighter Near-Miss Reporting System cases are discussed to drive home important points about safety and the lessons learned from those real-life incidents. It is our profound hope that this textbook will contribute to the goal of reducing line-of-duty deaths by 25 percent in the next 5 years.Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills, Second Edition thoroughly supports instructors and prepares students for the job. This one-volume text meets and exceeds the Fire Fighter I and II professional qualifications levels as outlined in the 2008 edition of NFPA 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications. It also covers all of the Job Performance Requirements (JPRs) listed in the 2008 edition of NFPA 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents, at the awareness and operations levels, including Section 6.2, Mission-Specific Competencies: Personal Protective Equipment and Section 6.6, Mission-Specific Competencies: Product Control.Click here to view a sample chapter from Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills, Second Edition.
