The Fire service has long been considered a profession plagued with a history of unavoidable tragedy. As the number of line of duty deaths and injuries continues to be staggering year after year, Fire and Emergency Services Safety and Survivalexposes the false mentality of ;doing whatever it takes ; and provides solutions for both the individual and fire department.  The content developed is based on the 16 Life Safety Initiatives developed by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Under the guidance of an editor, each chapter is written by a contributor with extensive expertise on the topic, and incorporates FESHE and NFPA references guidelines throughout. Complemented by Key Terms and Review Questions as well as a robust supplements package in MyFireKit for both students and instructors, this first edition text focuses on the need for a cultural and behavioral change in the fire and emergency services and asks each reader to challenge the existing attitudes toward safety.
