A comprehensive look at firefighting, through the ages.
Fundamentals of Fire and Emergency Services introduces students to the firefighting profession, while giving career firefighters a resource for continued learning. Instead of being a “how to” text, it offers a broad overview of modern fire service – its history, fire dynamics and prevention, and career pursuits and education. Each chapter follows the FESHE curriculum and emphasizes critical thinking. Full of new statistics, the 3rd edition discusses new technologies, new factors in fire dynamics, and the roles and responsibilities of additional functions of the fire service.

For introductory courses in fire science.
