FireDad, July 5, 2014 (view all comments by FireDad)
As the father of two firefighters and a public saftey educator, I can recognize when a textbook posses the ability to teach firefighters what they need to be safe and effective on the fireground. I'm confident that James Smith's Strategic and Tactical considerations on the Fireground is such a book.

Now in it's third edition, Smith's book is well on it's way to becoming must-teach material for both firefighters who are learning fireground tactics for the first time and for experienced personnel seeking a thorough review.

In either case, Smith illustates fireground best practices, and then backs the material up with succinct and realistic examples of real-life scenarios.

A sure winner.
