Fire Suppression and Protection Systems for the Fire Service provides practical insight for fire service personnel in the area of fire suppression and protection systems and meets the FESHE (Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education) course outcomes for Fire Protection Systems. It is written by an Assistant Chief and 35-year veteran of the FDNY who has more than 20 years of teaching experience at the college level. Case studies throughout the text correlate the material to real life situations encountered by first responders, and concepts and ideas concerning fire extinguishing agents and detection devices are explained from a Fire Chief’s perspective, making them easy to understand. This text offers a good foundation for college study in the field of fire science and fire protection engineering.
