The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are pleased to bring you Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator: Pump, Aerial, Tiller, and Mobile Water Supply, Third Edition. This third edition of Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator has been thoroughly updated to serve as a complete training solution that addresses pump operation, safe driving techniques, tiller and aerial apparatus operation, and water supply considerations. From basic apparatus maintenance to fire pump theory and advanced hydraulic calculations, this single manual covers everything a fire service driver/operator needs to know. Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator: Pump, Aerial, Tiller, and Mobile Water Supply, Third Edition meets and exceeds the job performance requirements (JPRs) of Chapters 4, 5, 6, 7, and 10 of the 2017 Edition of NFPA 1002, Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications. In the 2017 edition, the requirement that a Driver/Operator be certified to the Fire Fighter I level was removed. However, JPRs from NFPA 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications have been added so driver/operators who operate pumpers and mobile water supply apparatus are able to operate outside of the immediate dangers to life and health (IDLH) but still have an understanding of the following Fire Fighter I topics: Fire Department Communications (NFPA 1001: 5.2.1, 5.2.2, 5.2.3) The General Knowledge Requirements (NFPA 1001: 5.1.1) Responding on an Apparatus to an Emergency Scene (NFPA 1001: 5.3.2) Connect a Fire Department Pumper to a Water Supply (NFPA 1001: 5.3.15) Additional appendices include the excerpt of NFPA 1002 and corresponding correlation matrixes to substantiate all JPRs that are covered and documented. Comprehensive and updated content in this edition includes: Nozzle reaction and how to calculate it Expanded coverage of pump anatomy and pressure control devices Content that addresses vital parts of NFPA 1901, Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus and NFPA 1911, Standard for the Inspection, Maintenance, Testing, and Retirement of In-Service Automotive Fire Apparatus. Appendix A: Daily/Weekly Inspection Check Sheet, that provides a comprehensive overview on what to inspect and how to ensure your apparatus is at operational readiness.

Evidence-Based Practices for Strategic and Tactical Firefighting is a synopsis of the UL/NIST research studies and experiments on fire behavior and techniques for ventilation, fire suppression, and search and rescue as a result of the changes in modern building construction and furnishing materials. As a result of these changes, today's fires release energy faster, reach flashover potential sooner, may reach higher temperatures, and are much more likely to become ventilation-limited than building fires of even a few years ago. Developed in partnership with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Evidence-Based Practices for Strategic and Tactical Firefighting details many of the findings discovered as the result of an ongoing series of experiments conducted by NIST, UL, and the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) and provides the most up-to-date information available today for Fire Fighter, Fire Officer, and Fire Science students. Additional information about these ¬and other fire experiments can be obtained online at the NIST website by searching under Fire¬ Fighting Technology and at the UL website by searching under Fire¬ Fighter Safety Research Institute.
