The legal guidance that fire service leaders have been seeking can finally be found in one book! This all-inclusive legal reference includes discussions, cases and examples that will truly speak to a variety of fire chiefs and officers, municipal officials, emergency managers, and attorneys. The book includes explanations of laws as they relate to firefighting, and covers a broad range of topics including negligence, due process and discipline, Internet privacy, civil liability, employee issues such as drug testing, rescue doctrine, fireground search and seizure, and much more. Detailed case summaries and examples from the most significant disasters in fire service history help lend a real-life aspect to the legal topics at hand.

Review:

"I found the text easy to read...this was written for the fire service by a fire service person, and it showed... I do envision using this book for training officers, as a refresher tool for current officers, and selected sections for promotional processes. It serves as a guide to ensure that we are following the law during daily operations and when we create or revise policies." - Thomas G.
