The purpose of this field manual (FM 5-415), "Fire-Fighting Operations," is to give a commander and members of fire-fighting teams direction on deploying and using engineer fire-fighting teams. Engineer fire-fighting teams will provide fire-prevention/-protection, aircraftcrash/ rescue, natural-cover, and hazardous-material (HAZMAT) (incident) responses within a theater of operations (TO). Normally, there will not be enough fire-fighting assets within the TO. Therefore, commanders must prioritize assets and facilities that are mission-essential and deploy fire-fighting assets accordingly. This manual will not provide the answer to every possible incident scenario. It will, however, provide a commander and fire-fighting teams the knowledge to make informed, timely, and confident decisions at an incident. If more specific technical guidance is needed, individuals should acquire the appropriate technical order, technical manual, or International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA) manual.
