Fundamentals of Fire and Emergency Services offers a range of information to enable the firefighter student to learn and grow in the fire science field. The career development model of the National Fire Academy and the model curriculum of the Fire Emergency Service Higher Education (FESHE) group served as a basis for this important text. With experience in a variety of positions and associations, Jason Loyd, an Instructor for the Private Sector Group of the Emergency Services Training Institute (ESTI) Division of the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) with experience in the Department of Defense and as Director of the Fire Science Program at Weatherford College, and James Richardson, Assistant Professor of the Protective Service Department at San Antonio College and Interim Program Coordinator for the Emergency Management/Homeland Security Degree Program with over twenty years of service for the Houston Fire Department, provide information on introductory principles including the history of the fire service, career and education opportunities, fire prevention, and fire dynamics, along with planning and strategic skills. With a focus on the history of the fire service and eye on the future of the field, this book serves as an introductory tool for all firefighters who seek both the fundamentals and continued success in the field.
