Managing Major Fires


Coleman details how fire departments of any size should deal with second and third alarm, or mutual aid fires. First, he discusses the organization and structure that should be present within any department to handle the bigger fires. Later chapters deal with fighting fires in specific occupancy types.

As always: safety, basics, and common sense are stressed.

In this title Coleman covers:

* Accountability at major fires
* Managing the mayday
* Resource allocation
* Construction features

Unlike most texts, Coleman’s scenarios and case studies are applicable to small, medium, and large departments.

Company officers, battalion chiefs, and deputy/division chiefs will all benefit from the experience and wisdom found in Managing Major Fires!
