The Fifth Edition of Management in the Fire Service
meets and exceeds the objectives and outcomes for the National Fire Academy’s Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) Principles of Fire and Emergency Service Administration course. The textbook provides a comprehensive and concise overview of the common functions and related concerns that must be considered by the fire officer. Specific consideration is given to incident command, fire prevention, fire and life safety education, preincident planning, management of physical and financial resources, personnel management, employee relations, training, and additional services beyond firefighting.

The Fifth Edition also thoroughly covers a set of fire service–specific and leadership guidelines for the fire officer to employ when making critical decisions relating to these functions so that readers are fully prepared to manage and lead when faced with the challenges that present themselves within the fire and emergency services.

The Fifth Edition includes:

    New content on fire prevention strategies and efforts, funding alternatives, labor laws pertaining to personal issues, harassment in the workplace, social media, and issues of morality
    Current statistics and references to the latest codes and standards
    Additional and updated scenarios and scenario analyses that emphasize the importance of using the guidelines during decision-making
    Case studies that close each chapter and provide students a means to test their understanding of the chapter concepts
