    learn now!!

    Becoming a firefighter can be very stressful. Even when you have been around the service your whole life. Becoming a fire line officer helps to increase your skills and authority. Even when you think you have the highest of the rankings, you may need to take a course such as this one.

    In the text book Fire Officer: Princple and Practice, it teaches you how to help your fire department and how to teach your men and women about fire saftey out there on the fire ground. If you are not used to the life and speech of a firefighter, then you may have some difficulties reading this book. If you are reading this book to prepare yourself for a fire class, then you may have chosen one of the best books out there for you to learn how to use these skills to the best of your ability. Learning things from how to handle fights on the scene to handleing death within the department and even on calls.

    There are some words and thecnical terms you may want to already know before you start to read this book. Coming from a firefighter family, I was already aware of most of the terms and words used. Needing a dictionary or thesaurus is not going to help you to prepare for something that you may need to know someday to save somebody's life isn't very safe. When yo uhave many different people trying to save what is left of a burning building, it can get very hectic and confusing. This book helps you learn where you stand and who you comand, skills that you NEED to know not only to help keep you safe but your guys and patients (if any).

    In my opinion, this book really helped me with what i needed to know. If you are planning on joining a fire department, or even becoming a fire line officer, you need to check this book out. It will help you with what you need to know. Even if you don't plan to become any of these things, and you like firefighters or firefighting, then this can help you understand what it is these brave people go through every day.
