  1. Great instructional book! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2015

    My department has researched new manuals to implement in our recruit program. We currently use the IFSTA Essentials 6 manuals. What we found in these books are detailed chapters written by subject matter experts with the knowledge of true streetsmart firefighting. What we have found is an invaluable tool to teach the next generation of firefighters. We will be able to produce smarter firefighters that will build a tactically stronger deparment.

  2. Ótimo livro 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2015

    material teórico bastante abrangente, principalmente na área de combate a incêndio e produtos perigosos. O guia passo a passo é muito bom, pois bastante ilustrado. A parte de salvamento veicular deixa muito a desejar, pois aborda o assunto superficialmente e de maneira limitada, mostrando técnicas defasadas e simplórias.
