Review:

"The requirements for any course taught is that it at least must meet the appropriate NFPA Standard. This book does meet and in many cases exceeds that required amount of knowledge...It is obvious that these chapters were updated by subject matter experts and include the latest information...they are current, relevant, and up to date."~ Philip Oakes, Training Division Manager, State of Wyoming Department of Fire Prevention and Electrical Safety, Cheyenne, WY

"I felt that the chapters provided the necessary information to meet current NFPA Standards while providing a sold foundation in the basic firefighting skills and responsibilities...based on the content, currency and fresh approach, I would definitely utilize this manual in my classes."~Battalion Chief S.R. Hunter, City of Bethany Fire Department, Bethany, OK
