Fundamentals of Fire and Emergency Services offers a comprehensive look at firefighting, through the ages. It introduces you 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.
The 3rd Edition discusses new technologies, new factors in fire dynamics, and the roles and responsibilities of additional functions of the fire service. Metric conversions have been added throughout chapters to extend the reach and applications of the text.
