Modern solutions, procedures, and recommendations that put safety first
The Fire service has long been considered a profession plagued with a history of unavoidable tragedy. As the number of line-of-duty deaths and injuries continues to be staggering year after year, Fire and Emergency Services Safety and Survival exposes the false mentality of “doing whatever it takes” and provides solutions for both the individual and fire department. Built around the 16 Life Safety Initiatives developed by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, each chapter is written by a contributor with extensive expertise on the topic, incorporates FESHE and NFPA references guidelines, and helps readers understand how to execute procedures and recommendations for putting safety first. Filled with modern solutions, attainable goals, and real-life examples, the text asks each reader to challenge the existing attitudes toward safety and commit to making a change.
