Publisher Description

The one handbook thousands of fire officers and firefighters look to for safe, fireground-tested strategies and tactics!  

With this fourth edition, Chief John Norman once again offers lessons learned during his extensive and time-honored career. In his highly enjoyable style, Chief Norman imparts his wisdom and experience by offering advice informed by actual outcomes from the fireground and tying all the elements together into an understandable big picture. This guide continues to be invaluable for firefighters aspiring to the officer level and those seeking to promote safety and effectiveness in their organization and the communities they serve by improving their own skills.  

Divided into two parts - "General Firefighting Tactics" and "Specific Fire Situations" - Fire Officer’s Handbook of Tactics, 4th Edition begins with establishing the ground rules for structural firefighting and then moves on to specific situations, dealing with fires and emergencies in the most common structures and occupancies. The many anecdotes help listeners further understand the concepts and lessons in the text.
