NFPA 1405: Guide for Land-Based Fire Departments That Respond to Marine Vessel Fires identifies the elements of a comprehensive marine fire-fighting response program including, but not limited to, vessel familiarization, training considerations, pre-fire planning, and special hazards that enable land-based fire fighters to extinguish vessel fires safely and efficiently.

The title of the 2011 edition was changed to make a clear distinction between NFPA 1405 and NFPA 1005: Professional Qualifications for Marine Fire Fighting for Land-Based Fire Fighters. (Softbound, 73 pp., 2011)
