Fire Officer's Handbook of Tactics
Third edition
by John Norman

In the latest edition of this perennial favorite, author John Norman examines these new technologies and how they affect fireground tactics. He also details the new role firefighters play in homeland security.

Fire Officer's Handbook of Tactics is a guide for the firefighter and the fire officer who, having learned the basic mechanics of the trade, are now looking for methods for handling specific situations.

Features & benefits:

  • A new chapter addressing fires in garden apartments and townhouses, a growing problem throughout the country.
  • A new chapter on the fire department's role in homeland security and preventing terrorism -- the first fire service text to address the new roles first responders play in detecting, preventing, and responding to the newest threats America faces.
