Book Description: Pumper trucks and big ladder trucks: sound the alarm, the fire department vehicles are on the move! Here they are, across the pages and in huge gatefolds, showcasing all the personnel and equipment needed to douse the flames and rescue people in danger. And there’s nothing that gets kids more fired up than firefighters and their engines. They’ll get a close-up look at it all: hoses, ladder lines, gauges, control panels, outriggers, deluge pumps, and the special clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus that keep the fighters safe. Plus, there’s an explanation of firefighter lingo, the rules all firefighters follow, and firefighting around the world.
