IFSTA/FPP and Brady, the leading publisher of EMS training materials, have partnered to bring you an expanded version of IFSTA's Essentials of Fire Fighting manual. Essentials of Fire Fighting and Fire Department Operations contains the exact same 20 chapters as the basic Essentials of Fire Fighting manual, plus additional chapters on first aid and hazardous materials response to meet all of the requirements for Fire Fighter Levels I and II of NFPA® 1001 (2008 edition).
The first aid information in this text is provided by Brady, whose EMS texts are the industry standard. The hazardous material information is adapted from IFSTA's Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP)-approved Hazardous Materials for First Responders manual and is intended to prepare firefighters to meet NFPA® 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents, and OSHA 1910.120 requirements for first responders at the Awareness and Operations Levels. These additional chapters also include skill sheets and all of the other features of the chapters in the basic fire fighting sections of the manual. This manual is, by far, the most comprehensive basic firefighter training text ever developed.
Each manual includes a bonus CD-ROM that provides additional learning materials, case studies, animations, and learning activities.
