Abstract:

"Suburban Fire Tactics is a guide for suburban-based fire operations. All fire departments share the same common objectives: to save lives, protect and conserve property, and limit harm to the environment. How urban, rural, and suburban agencies differ is in the delivery of tactics and strategies. This book explains the factors that limit suburban operations and depicts the differences between urban and suburban capabilities. This is a valuable resource for policymakers, chief officers, company officers, and firefighters (both veteran and neophyte).".
