Fire Officer: Principles and Practice, Fourth Edition 
was significantly reorganized to better support how Fire Officer I and Fire Officer II courses are actually taught. In addition, the content was updated to strengthen candidates’ understanding of management theories, the challenges of supervising fire fighters, and how leadership is used to meet key objectives. The Fourth Edition meets and exceeds the job performance requirements for Fire Officer I and II in the 2020 Edition of NFPA 1021, Standard for Fire Officer Professional Qualifications.

New in the Fourth Edition:

  • Discussions on the basic principles and methods of community risk reduction
  • Two distinct sections that allow you to teach your Fire Officer I and II courses your way:
    • Section 1: Eight chapters which set the foundation for Fire Officer I knowledge and understanding
    • Section 2: Six chapters which encompass the higher-level competencies required for Fire Officer II
