Deputy Chief Anthony Avillo, an active duty urban chief, has updated his highly readable and widely-adopted best-selling text, Fireground Strategies. The second edition of his book covers fireground organization and operational safety as well as building construction and choosing a strategic mode of operation from the point of view of those in command of both the fireground and individual companies. In addition, specific occupancy types are explored in regard to command and firefighting concerns as well as life safety concerns. Used in conjunction with the Scenarios Workbook, Fireground Strategies, 2nd Edition provides a comprehensive guide to organizing the fireground and maintaining control.
This book has been revised and expanded to include new material on decentralization, further incident reporting, and post-control activities; estate homes, New Millennium multiple dwellings; storage occupancies, strategic considerations of renovation and more.
