Structural Fire Fighting: Truck Company Skills and Tactics 2nd Edition is designed to be a resource for those who engage in “truck work” on the fireground. Building on concepts introduced in the Essentials of Fire Fighting, this manual provides more detailed information on topics like forcible entry, fireground search and rescue, horizontal and vertical ventilation, rapid intervention, loss control, and many other responsibilities traditionally assigned to truck companies.

This manual builds on the information contained in Fireground Support Operations 1st Edition and has a special focus on safe fireground operations. Each chapter begins with Safety Points that highlight specific safety reminders for tasks addressed in the chapter. In addition, a scenario at the end of each chapter encourages the reader to apply concepts that have been learned.
