As a veteran FDNY firefighter and commander in Midtown Manhattan, Deputy Chief Vincent Dunn has led the call against all manner of fires and emergencies. This book crystallizes his decades of command experience. As a practical guide, it serves as an operational blueprint for today's fireground managers, in the urban environment and elsewhere. It will help prepare those who aspire to take command in an increasingly complex world, answering the alarms that will ring tomorrow.
Among the many subjects covered in this text: command presence; life-and-death decision making; developing strategies using tactical essentials; fireground risk management and span of control; principles of size-up; building elements and components; and fireground communications.
