about this item

For aspiring and current incident safety officers, this guide outlines the job requirements related to Chapter 5 of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1521: Standard for Fire Department Safety Officer Professional Qualifications, 2015 Edition, meant to reduce firefighter injuries and deaths. Dobson, who has worked as a fire officer and training/safety officer, details the role of the safety officer, safety concepts, laws, regulations, standards, and designing an incident safety officer program; skills related to reading buildings, smoke, risk, hazardous energy, and firefighters; and on-scene aspects, such as triggers, traps, working with the incident commander, structure fires, and postincident responsibilities and mishap investigations. This edition includes information on responding to incidents involving hazardous materials, wildland fire, technical rescue, and other disasters, and includes methods for the development and improvement of existing safety programs. It has a new chapter on the use of incident safety officers at training activities and planned, nonemergency events; updated firefighter rehabilitation strategies; updated content reflecting issues related to newer and alternative building construction methods, including green construction and renewable/alternative electrical power sources; issues related to fire suppression staffing, deployment, and NFPA 1710/1720 criteria; results from recent fire behavior research; new mnemonic tools; and attention to National Incident Management System compliance and processes for the expansion of the incident safety officer role at major fires and disaster incidents. An ebook and other materials are included online. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
