Summary

Perform to an optimum level on the fireground by learning safe response methods based on the knowledge of how a fire starts, reacts, and escalates under various conditions. Straight-forward and reader-friendly, Fire Behavior and Combustion Processes clearly explains the key technical points of fire behavior and how each relates to the tasks involved in firefighting. Rather than an engineering-level text, this resource offers basic need-to-know information and examples to illustrate to firefighters and students why it is essential to their jobs to understand how a fire behaves - whether they are working in a burning building or are involved in a vehicle extrication. Based on the National Fire Academy FESHE course Fire Behavior and Combustion Processes, this book is essential to fire programs in colleges, academies, and departments.
