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.

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.

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.

It's a textbook. What more can I say? It is filled with information that you need for a class and it is something that you have to have.
