Product Description

Paul Grimwood has responded and worked from over a hundred fire stations in the USA and Europe. In Euro Firefighter, his third book, he demonstrates how the very best strategies and tactical approaches from Europe and the USA may be effectively combined to enhance firefighter tactics and safety at structure fires. The book also covers and exceeds the 2007 syllabus of the European (UK) EDEXCEL CFBT Instructor Qualification (90 hours) for practical Fire Behavior Training (flashover training in ISO shipping containers and other FDS units).Euro Firefighter is for the CFBT instructor, firefighter, company officer and fire chief. The concept of teaching about flashover using ISO steel shipping containers was developed in Europe – now read how European instructors teach fire behavior using a vast array of Fire Development Simulators (FDS).

This book will also take you out onto the fire-grounds of London, New York, Madrid, Chicago, Paris, Germany and Sweden, demonstrating how similar fires are fought using different strategic approaches and showing how US and EURO firefighting tactics are gradually aligning in many areas. From tactical ventilation to air management, from Rapid Intervention Teams to high-rise firefighting and limited staffing, Euro Firefighter brings you the best tactics from Europe and the USA in one training manual! Written in such a way that the training officer can immediately transfer key learning points directly into training presentations, the core principles of this training package enhance firefighter safety on the fire-ground. The book also provides a LINK CODE for ongoing updates and web-based downloads. Euro Firefighter covers a broad range of issues important to anyone who steps off a fire truck at the scene of an emergency.

Paul Grimwood’s work is so important. Following his logic to understand the various phenomena and their likely consequences, will assist fire commanders and firefighters to gain a greater understanding of fire-ground situations, enabling them to minimize the risks whilst operating inside fire-involved buildings.
