Firefighting Operations in High-Rise and Standpipe-Equipped Buildings

Description

This book establishes a proper firefighting mindset and promotes maintaining preparedness for the extreme physical and mental demands of firefighting operations in high-rise and standpipe-equipped buildings. Armed with firefighting weapons that would be much more appropriate at a car fire, far too many fire departments are on a collision course with disaster and tragedy, should they encounter a serious high-rise fire. Countless false alarms, along with 'good luck' while relying on bad habits, have greatly exacerbated the deadly disease of complacency. District Chief McGrail draws from his 25-years of experience, along with the lessons learned from many other fire service professionals, to provide a foundation for success and safety during high-rise and standpipe operations.This book is a compilation of good fireground habits and the many lessons learned by a man who is truly passionate about firefighting and firefighter safety and survival.
