Fire Service Training. Firefighting Procedures. (Revised).
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
One of a set of fourteen instructional outlines for use in a course to train novice firemen, this guide covers firefighting procedures and principles. Emphasis is placed on pre-fire planning, the techniques for applying a plan to a course of action, and the selection of proper fire fighting procedures to meet specific needs. Besides the methods of sizing up a fire's situation, the various firefighting operations such as rescue, exposure protection, ventilation, extinguishment, salvage, and overhaul are described. This outline is to be used in conjunction with the International Fire Service Training Association's manual, "Fire Department--Facilities, Planning, and Procedures" (see note). (An outline of the whole course covering all fourteen topics briefly is provided in the first volume of the set--CE 016 662.) (ELG)
