 Knowing Your Buildings: A Firefighter's Reference Guide, 2nd Edition

by Craig Schwinge

Stay focused on firefighter safety with Knowing Your Buildings, an illustrated guide to building construction terms and concepts. This book is a valuable companion for learners as well as a handy reference for practicing fire service professionals. This latest edition includes an expanded introductory section with chapters on understanding building features; risk management through planning, preparing, practicing, and performing; and hazardous building features and conditions.

Additionally, the A-to-Z section has been augmented with hundreds of new terms and definitions. These terms are organized alphabetically and include photos, diagrams, drawings, and charts to clearly explain and provide visual examples of building construction materials and techniques. Safety points are also highlighted throughout the book to explain the connection between building construction materials, fire growth, and, ultimately, the safety of responding firefighters and fire officers.
