Be Prepared for Any Mayday Situation!

From training to equipment to on-scene considerations, Fire Service Rapid Intervention Crews: Principles and Practice covers all aspects of rapid intervention and ensures that crew members and incident commanders are fully prepared for “Mayday” emergencies. The textbook completely addresses both knowledge and skills requirements found in the 2010 Edition of NFPA 1407, Standard for Training Fire Service Rapid Intervention Crews, and informs training personnel on how to conduct safe, effective rapid intervention training. Fire Service Rapid Intervention Crews: Principles and Practice provides a road map for small, medium, or large departments to safely train members on the skills of self-survival and rapid intervention prepare for incidents where fire fighters become lost, trapped, or disoriented.
