Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
The process for fighting fires is explained in simple terms in four chapters. First, someone calls 911 to report a fire. An alarm sounds in the fire station and lights come on in the rooms of the firefighters. They dress quickly in fire resistant clothing and gear. They climb into the fire truck and turn on sirens and lights to warn other traffic that they are coming through. Once the firefighters reach the site of the fire, they flush out the hydrant and hook up the hose. If doors are locked, they force them open with special tools so they can look for people who might be trapped inside and bring them out as quickly as possible. The firefighters spray the building with water and foam to put out the fire. Then they check for hot spots with a thermal imager. When they are confident the fire is totally out, they return to the fire station and prepare their equipment for the next call. Full-page photographs provide much of the information about the procedures. A two-page sequencing activity helps readers review the firefighting steps. Includes a table of contents, a glossary, a bibliography, suggested internet sites, and an index. Part of the "A+ Books, Step by Step" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
