#1 GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF FIREFIGHTING
Finally, a companion DVD series for our best-selling book, Fire Officers Handbook of Tactics, Third Edition.
In DVD #1, General Principles of Firefighting, creator John Norman discusses the challenge of protecting occupants, whether you have sufficient manpower or while trying to deal with fire when there is insufficient manpower. He outlines standard operation procedures for the fireground and explains how to remain flexible for non-standard situations. He also reinforces the message that all positions are important to the success of the operation. You will learn why the back up on the hose line is as important as the one on the nozzle, why the vent position on the roof is as important to a rescue as the person making the grab.
