    Thumbs up Brannigan's "Building Construction for the Fire Service"

    Finished reading Branningan's "Building Construction for the Fire Service" (3rd edition) last night. (Light leisure reading, huh?)
    I think anyone in the fire service should give this book a look, particularly those involved in code enforcement. It'll quickly shatter the myth that a building built "to code" is a safe building. If you are not in a position to read the whole thing, thumb through the chapters on lightweight steel construction, wood trusses, and structural concrete.
    Anyone else out there read it?
    Stay safe.

    Cool

    It should be mandatory reading for any firefighter and officer. We have to realize that we have two enemies...the fire and the building!
