FIRE SERVICE TRAINING.
BERNDT, WILLIAM M.; AND OTHERS
STUDENTS MAY USE THIS REVISED MANUAL IN FIRE STATION OR TRAINING CENTER EXTENSION PROGRAMS FOR IMPROVING THE COMPETENCIES AND SKILLS OF LOCAL FIRE PERSONNEL IN THE SPECIALIZED FIELD OF FIRE SERVICE. IT WAS DEVELOPED BY A STATEWIDE COMMITTEE OF FIRE-FIGHTING CONSULTANTS AND ADVISORY GROUPS. THE 26 CHAPTERS PROVIDE BOTH BASIC AND ADVANCED TECHNICAL INFORMATION ON PARTICULAR PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES OF FIRE FIGHTING. SOME CHAPTER TITLES ARE (1) COMMUNITY FIRE DEFENSE, (2) WATER AS USED IN FIRE FIGHTING, (3) FIRE PUMPS, (4) LADDERS, (5) RESCUE, (6) POST-MORTEM CONFERENCE, (7) INSPECTIONS, AND (8) RADIATION HAZARDS. PICTURES AND DIAGRAMS ARE USED THROUGHOUT THE MANUAL TO SIMPLIFY PROCEDURES. THE MATERIAL IS TO BE USED BY INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS UNDER TEACHER DIRECTION FOR 34 HOURS. THE TEACHER MUST BE A QUALIFIED FIREMAN, AND STUDENTS SHOULD BE VOLUNTEER OR EMPLOYED FULL-TIME FIREMEN. A RELATED WORKBOOK, "LEARNER'S WORKBOOK-BASIC COURSE" (VT 000 723), CONSISTS OF A SERIES OF ASSIGNMENT SHEETS TO ENABLE EACH DEPARTMENT TO TAILOR THE TRAINING COURSE TO FIT ITS EQUIPMENT AND FIRE PROTECTION NEEDS. AN INSTRUCTOR'S MANUAL (VT 000 722) IS ALSO AVAILABLE.
