Fire and Rescue Incident Command: A practical guide to incident ground management (Paperback)
Fire and Rescue Incident Command provides a comprehensive guide to incident ground operations, from small house fires and road traffic accidents, to widespread wildfires, high-rise operations and major transport disasters. It explores the tactics and strategies available at an incident, the roles and responsibilities of the Incident Command and those under his/her command, the legal framework within which fire ground activities must operate, good communications practice and protocols, and of course the tactics needed to ensure the safety of the public, property and the firefighters on the front line.
