Description

Chief Dunn declares everything you know about fire is outdated and has changed. New scientific research and Firefighter fatality investigations give us a new understanding of fire. NIST, UL, NIOSH and NFPA have exploded the definition of combustion and revealed new insight and clarity about the “red devil”—the Firefighter’s enemy. There are no chemistry of fire definitions in this book. Chief Dunn delivers cutting-edge fire research and the real-world lowdown on flame, smoke, heat and toxic gases, along with some hard-learned fire experience. As a Firefighter once said, “You cannot know enough about something that kills you.” Fire kills. This book identifies the dangers and teaches you how to survive.
