Looking for a good FF 1 book
Soon I will be relocating and will be taking the FF 1 course. As this move is not for a couple of months I would like to go ahead and purchase and start reading a good book/manual for the FF 1 class. I'm not sure where my training will take place, as I'd rather just call them and find out what text they use.
What would you all recommend I purchase? And from where?Interested in getting back into industrial security, fire and ems.

IFSTA Manual Fire Fighter Applications. I believe the newest out or coming out is either #5 or #6,"If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles."
"Criticism is prejudice made plausible."

My son works there as a graphic artist, and no, I can't get you a discount!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

Also, I was surprised to find a number of FF1 and EMT study books at my local library. Obviously you can't write in them, but you can xerox the answer pages or if you really like one of them you can then buy it online or from a bookstore.
They had paramedic books, too. It was in the section that has all different kind of test books, civil service, law school, etc.
Check them out!

If you stay in Florida, The State fire college in Ocala allows the use of different books I believe they are:
IFSTA: Essentials of Firefighting(4th or 5thedition)
Jones and Bartlett:Fundamentals of Firefighting skills
and there is a third one by Delmar Publishing not sure of the title.
I have taught from the IFSTA and the Jones and Bartlett at our fire academy we are using Jones and Bartlett(personal preference)

Do they pretty much have the same information, I guess, terminology wise?Interested in getting back into industrial security, fire and ems.

The IFSTA manual is probably your best best. They also have the study guide. The study guide will further break down the study material by asking you a section of FF1 based vocabulary, multiple choice and true/false questions then do the same on the FF2 based questions. Most FF1 and FF2 tests come straight out of the IFSTA bookCo 11

Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?
'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.
