Update to the 2014 NFPA 1720 for the latest best practices for managing volunteer fire departments for better public fire safety.
In our changing world, managing volunteer fire department resources is more challenging than ever before. That's why every department needs the 2014 edition of NFPA 1720: Standard for the Organization and Deployment of Fire Suppression Operations, Emergency Medical Operations, and Special Operations to the Public by Volunteer Fire Departments. This vital Standard provides the latest best practices for organization and deployment of fire suppression operations, emergency medical operations, and special operations to the public by all volunteer fire departments.
Provide the finest fire service to communities and maximize company resources.
Revisions in the 2014 edition clarify that arriving company resources should be able to handle an offensive attack on a low hazard occupancy, or provide emergency medical care to up to two patients.
NFPA 1720 prepares you to evaluate and improve the levels of fire fighter safety and service delivery within communities.
The Standard also discusses incident management systems, training systems, and communications systems. (Softbound, 18 pp., 2014)
