A practical understanding of fire protection systems is essential to effective management of a fire scene. Fire Protection Systems focuses on the operational characteristics and abilities of different types of systems and equipment that are used during fire department operations to access a water source, apply a suppression agent to control a particular type of fire, provide information concerning the location of a fire, and more. Systematic, easy-to-understand coverage thoroughly explores various types of active fire protection systems and components, how they operate, and the requirements for installation, making this a valuable learning tool for firefighters and a handy resource for design professionals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fire Protection Systems May 20 2014
By Santo Nino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book condition was perfect and the reading material was alright. Plenty of information on fire protection systems and guidelines. It does not identify systems by make or how to inspect this system.
1.0 out of 5 stars Horribly written March 28 2014
By Hawkeye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had to have this for a class. Fair warning this book is like reading Hemingway. The run on sentences is tedious and the grammar is horrendous.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Textbook Oct. 12 2013

This is being used in a college fire suppression class. The textbook is easy to understand and a great resource.
5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I ordered Sept. 12 2013

It is exactly what I ordered, however I have not taken the class yet, so that is all I can comment about.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good study. Aug. 29 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good overall look into the fire protection systems. It is a well written descriptive perspective of the working of the different systems involved in building construction.
