Organized into 14 chapters, following the FESHE curriculum, with completely updated color photographs, this seventh edition instructs the student on the prevention of unwanted fires and the roles of both the fire department and the public in preventing them.

The seventh edition has been updated to include the refinement of coverage of performance based codes, code change recommendations as a result of the tragic events of 9/11, fire safety research with continuing application, and a case study of a very successful fire safety program.
