Fighting Fire Reviews

Review for Fire Dynamics for Firefighters, Book 1 in the Compartment Firefighting Series: "This original and practical book challenges some of the thinking from the last decade and covers the imperative topics that all firefighters need to be fluent in, including the importance of flow rates and the impact of building construction on fire behaviour. Benjamin's thought provoking use of case studies really brings the reality of the consequences home. This book will add to the tools available to firefighters as they deal with these situations on a daily basis." Neil Gibbins QFSM FIFireE
