The 1st edition of Structural Fire Fighting: Initial Strategy and Tactics is intended to provide fire personnel with the knowledge needed to deploy resources in the first 10 minutes of any structural fire incident. The manual is designed to help the reader develop a logical decision-making process for determining incident priorities, strategies, and tactics regardless of the available resources or configuration of the emergency services organization.
Scenarios for residential, commercial, and special hazard incidents are included with recommended best practices and considerations. Training officers can use these scenarios, modified to local resources and realities, to develop classroom discussions or field simulations. This manual is a companion to Structural Fire Fighting: Truck Company Skills and Tactics, 2nd edition and the soon to be released Structural Fire Fighting: High Rise Fire Fighting. Each chapter of the manual contains learning objectives, key terms, and review questions to assist the reader in understanding the material.
