Overview

Chief Fire Officer’s Desk Reference provides a ready reference on key topics for the modern fire chief, as well as tips and advice from some of the most respected members of the modern fire service. This comprehensive text will help chief fire officers operate effectively and efficiently across an ever-increasing range of responsibilities, from managing personnel to handling hazardous materials incidents. The scope of the fire chief's job has expanded well beyond fire suppression. Today's chiefs must be conversant about rapid adavances in fire suppression technology and the wealth of new firefighting apparatus; their mission to prtect lives and property now includes emergency medical services, hazardous materials response, bomb disposals, aircraft rescue and firefighting, and a variety of special and technical rescues; the need to understand the often sensitive issues surrounding staff diversity; and, in many cases, they must run their organization like the CEO of a large business. Chief Fire Officer's Desk Reference presents the essential information all chief fire officers need to know on these topics.
