I am going back to school and taking my intro to fire protection class. Prerequisite to the RCC Fire Academy. I found my text, Intro to Fire Protection, here on Amazon. Saved a ton of money and had my text book in my hands in only a couple of days. Will buy all my text books from Amazon from now on.

What can I say about this book? It's required material for firefighting courses, although it's more than likely a few editions behind, and as with all other text books it's over priced. As far as firefighting text books go, this one is pretty good.
