IFSTA’s Essentials of Fire Fighting has been the best source for successfully training firefighters since the publication of the 1st edition in 1978. Generations of firefighters have learned their basic skills from this manual for almost 35 years. The information in Essentials is commonly accepted as the standard of practice for fire fighting knowledge and skills in North America and beyond.

The 6th edition is completely revised for today’s new and current firefighters and begins the next 35 years of excellence for this publication and the firefighters who use it to train. The 6th edition contains all the information and skills needed to meet the requirements for National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®) 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications (2013 edition), Fire Fighter Levels I and II. This manual includes learning objectives, key terms, case histories, and review questions in each chapter designed to enhance a student’s understanding. Warnings, Cautions, and Safety Alerts emphasize safety at all times for new firefighters learning their basic skills. Skill sheets show widely accepted safe methods for performing the work that firefighters are expected to perform. Each chapter also clearly delineates Fire Fighter I requirements from Fire Fighter II requirements by addressing them in separate sections of the chapter. In addition to the traditional print copy, this will mark the first time that the Essentials manual will be offered in an eBook format. The accompanying instructional package has been completely revised to give students and instructors a better classroom experience. Instructional materials can be used to deliver in-person and online training. In addition to our flash drive and print products, Essentials, 6th edition will feature apps that can be downloaded for individual study, a digital version of the exam prep, and access to our online instructional system, ResourceOne. ResourceOne provides instructors with the materials needed to create and deliver traditional or blended online courses. Instructors can choose which instructional tools they wish to use with their classes and find the comfort level and online offerings that work best for them and their students. Finally, a skill video series is available online as part of ResourceOne, for individual download of a single skill or as a series set.
