He describes firefighting strategies for the most common types of fire scenarios and identifies specific firefighting problems presented to an incident commander by occupancy and construction type. More importantly, he explains firefighting solutions and offers firefighting plans, standard procedures, action plans, ideas, guidelines, explanations, key steps, and systems of firefighting procedures.

Euro Firefighter is for the CFBT instructor, firefighter, company officer and fire chief. The concept of teaching about flashover using ISO steel shipping containers was developed in Europe now read how European instructors teach fire behavior using a vast array of Fire Development Simulators (FDS). This book will also take you out onto the fire-grounds of London, New York, Madrid, Chicago, Paris, Germany and Sweden, demonstrating how similar fires are fought using different strategic approaches and showing how US and EURO firefighting tactics are gradually aligning in many areas. From tactical ventilation to air management, from Rapid Intervention Teams to high-rise firefighting and limited staffing, the author brings you the best tactics from Europe and the USA in one training manual! Written in such a way that the training officer can immediately transfer key learning points directly into training presentations, the core principles of this training package enhance firefighter safety on the fire-ground. The book also provides a LINK CODE for ongoing updates and web-based downloads.
