Industrial Fire Protection Handbook 2ND Editionby R Craig Schroll
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Comprehensive, uniquely focused, and completely up to date, this handbook provides a practical guide for improving fire prevention and protection within a work environment. The author has made extensive revisions, significantly expanded his discussions in key areas, and added numerous examples and illustrations to provide a better-than-ever overview of all essential areas of fire protection, including loss control programs, fire behavior, life safety, hazard control, and emergency planning. This edition includes discussions of new extinguishing agents, including wet chemical and clean agents designed to replace halon and a more in-depth treatment of hazard control and Life Safety issues.
Book News Annotation:
For students planning to enter the field of fire protection, and for practitioners who choose to expand their knowledge, Schroll draws from his experience fighting fires and handling hazardous materials in several contexts to provide practical guidance for improving fire prevention and protection within a work environment. He references codes and standards, but does not detail the requirements, and mentions engineering aspects but does not try to transform readers into engineers. The second edition is updated to reflect recent findings and thinking; no date is mentioned for the first.
