With the release of the Second Edition,
Jones and Bartlett Publishers, the National Fire Protection
Association®, and the International Association of Fire Chiefs have
joined forces to raise the bar for the fire service once again.
Safety Is Fundamentals!
The Second Edition
features a laser-like focus on fire fighter injury prevention,
including a dedicated chapter on safety. Reducing fire fighter injuries
and deaths requires the dedicated efforts of every fire fighter, of
every fire department, and of the entire fire community working
together. It is with this goal in mind that we have integrated the 16
Fire Fighter Life Safety Initiatives developed by the National Fallen
Fire Fighter Foundation into Chapter 2, Fire Fighter Safety. In most of
the chapters, actual National Fire Fighter Near-Miss Reporting System
cases are discussed to drive home important points about safety and the
lessons learned from those real-life incidents. It is our profound hope
that this textbook will contribute to the goal of reducing line-of-duty
deaths by 25 percent in the next 5 years.
