The knowledge and skills you need - the way you need it. That is what Firefighter's Handbook: Essentials of Firefighting, Third Edition aims to provide with this new edition of our basic book. Consisting of the newly revised information that is offered in the Firefighting and Emergency Response book, this version of the Firefighter's Handbook removes the hazardous materials related content, providing a more affordable option for those departments, academies and schools in which hazardous materials is taught in a separate course.
