Brannigan’s Building Construction for the Fire Service, Fourth Edition is a must read for fire fighters, prospective fire fighters, and fire science students. This edition continues the Brannigan tradition of using plain language to describe technical information about different building types and their unique hazards. This text ensures that critical fire fighting information is easy-to-understand and gives valuable experience to fire fighters before stepping onto the fireground. The first edition of Building Construction for the Fire Service was published in 1971. Frank Brannigan was compelled to write the most comprehensive building construction text for the fire service so that he could save fire fighters’ lives. His passion for detail and extensive practical experience helped him to develop the most popular text on the market. His motto of: “Know your buildings,” informs every aspect of this new edition of the text.

Having been in the fire service the past 13 years, I realized that you truly are never to old to learn something new. This edition is alot more reader friendly. The 3rd edition seemed harder to learn from even though the information is the same. It helped to remind me of the things I had forgotten over the years and taught me a few new things. I see buildings differently now. Its to bad I never had a chance to meet Francis Brannigan before he passed away. It would have been a great learning experience. I would highly recommend this book to anybody new or old to the fire service
