Heightens firefighter awareness of the
seemingly 'routine' incidents, points out potential hazards in even
the most mundane responses, and discusses tactics to remain alert and
safe. Montagna, an FDNY
battalion chief, asserts that no 'routine' response is routine.
The book is divided into two parts: Common Calls and Carbon Monoxide.
In Common Calls, the chapters are: electrical emergencies, home
heating emergencies, natural gas fires and emergencies, water leaks,
vehicle fires, kitchen fires, mattress fires, and trash fires. Montagna is an acknowledged expert in carbon monoxide response
issues. The last third
of the book covers this topic more thoroughly than any book weve
seen. East coast emphasis,
which is particularly helpful for firefighters working in similar areas.
