Coordinating Ventilation: Supporting Extinguishment and Survivability examines ventilation and its relationship to fire behavior to identify how it affects the fire, operations, and—most importantly—victim survivability. Ventilation can be universally applied, from the smallest rural community to the largest metropolitan city.

This was a great read! Nick is a very intelligent fire officer who is able to narrate the concepts and importance of ventilation in a way that a lay person can understand. Having a general knowledge in firefighting will greatly increase what one can take away from this book. I would recommend this book to all new firefighters and mandate it to all truck company personnel if I were a chief officer. This book contains information that a fire officer could use to either brush up on existing knowledge or even learn some new tactics. A recommended read to all in the field.
