Essentials of Fire Fighting, 7th Edition

Well, IFSTA’s Essentials of Fire Fighting hasn’t changed a lot since I first studied it 18 years ago. Even in its 7th Edition of production it just feels the same as the old 1st or 2nd Edition you can find laying around fire stations. It is still a giant book with tons of entry level firefighter information. I noticed it did touch on the topic of flow paths and some more modern fire behavior information, which I was pleased to see. When reading through this book I was amazed at all the basic firefighting information that we absorb throughout our careers and seemingly forget about, yet we do it all the time. Besides that, this is a big giant book that weighs a ton and will leave anyone with a numb mind if they read it for more than a short period at a time.

The basics of the job may be simple, but they are necessary to know and be familiar with. For that reason this book can be found on some promotional exams throughout the fire service. We have seen the book on both fire apparatus driver/operator and company officer level promotion tests. If this book happens to be on your fire departments study list then you are in luck!

FiredUp has written multiple choice practice test questions to help you learn the material in the book. Those test questions are available in our online practice test study software. With practice tests you get a scientifically proven effective study method to help ensure your success at passing a written firefighter promotion test or hazmat exam. FiredUp delivers practice tests online so you can enjoy the convenience and efficiency that online tools give everyone. The best way to prepare is to read IFSTA Essentials of Fire Fighting, 7th Edition then use FiredUp to build upon your knowledge of the material in preparation for your written fire promotional exam!
