Overview

For the first time, a single resource can provide you with all the practical firefighting knowledge you need - structured to match the way you learn it! Unlike any other book available, Firefighter's Handbook: Firefighter I and Firefighter II divides need-to-know firefighting basics into distinct sections for Firefighter I and Firefighter II. The book uses all the same content and features as the original Firefighter's Handbook, so it is easy to use, meets the requirements set forth by the 2008 NFPA Standard 1001 and 2008 NFPA Standard 472 100%, and covers everything from firefighting basics to first aid and hazardous materials operations. By separating the content into various modules, this book is the perfect fit for anyone who learns Firefighter I and II in separate courses, but prefers all the information in one comprehensive resource.
