Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
"In Street Smart Firefighting: The Common Sense Guide To Firefighter Safety And Survival, firefighting expert Robert C. Bingham shares with the reader basic information and strategies that professional firefighters use to survive and combat blazes. From philosophy and preparation, to standard operating procedures, mechanical operations, communication basics, command structure, the incident command system, hazardous materials, special operations, post-incident analysis and much more, Street Smart Firefighting covers both practical need-to-know survival issues and equally crucial matters of organization and bureaucracy all vital to serving as a member of the fire department. An excellent and thorough manual, written especially to help would-be firefighters prepare when they may not always have much opportunity for field experience before a true crisis hits. Highly recommended for school and community libraries and an absolute "must-read" for anyone considering a career in firefighting."
