Deliberate training in firefigher rescue and survival is a field that is new to many in the fire service and private industry alike. For those firefighters and company officers assigned to a Rapid Intervention Team (RIT), not making the correct split-second decisions--such as immediately recognizing changes in fire behavior or failing to evaluate their level of SCBA air--can result in the loss of the lives of the entire team. In an effort to reduce the number of line-of-duty firefighting injuries and deaths, while at the same time being proactive in the fire service training and leadership, authors Richard Kolomay and Robert Hoff have drawn upon their combined 50+ years of firefighting experience to put together this comprehensive guide. Key Features & Benefits - Provides an awareness of firefighter safety and proactive fire service training - Describes various types of serious firefighter injuries and fatality incidents during emergency incident operations - Details recommended Rapid Intervention Team operating methods and procedures, as well as how to activate a Rapid Intervention Team

THE EVOLUTION OF SERVICE Serving others is what we do, yet when we fail to serve ourselves, we fail to create the lives we were meant to lead. What makes a great leader? Why do some professionals progress and inspire the best out of their contemporaries while others struggle to be professional? The principles of leadership have not changed over time. What has changed is how we lead. The demands of our world force us to get more out of every member on our team. To serve and lead at the highest level we must instigate both individual and collective leadership to have a compounding effect on our community.
