Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills, Fourth Edition helps to prepare your fire fighters for their roles in the initial ICS structure on the fireground.
The incident command system (ICS) identifies a single incident commander who is responsible for coordinating and conducting safe and effective operations. Rarely is a high-ranking chief initially dispatched to a fire to evaluate the situation, design the organization structure, and order the resources that are needed. Instead, the ICS builds its organization from the bottom up, around the units that take initial action.
One of the many ways Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills, Fourth Edition prepares fire fighters for the scene is the new and improved Skill Drill learning tool. This feature now offers clear, comprehensive visual summaries to reinforce key chapter concepts. Look for an example of a redesigned Skill Drill on page 838 of Chapter 22: Establishing and Transferring Command.
