SKU: 36507


IFSTA’s Fire and Emergency Services Safety Officer, 2nd Edition meets the job performance requirements of NFPA® 1521, Standard for Fire Department Safety Officer Qualifications (2015). The new standard has been updated to include job performance requirements. The 2nd edition provides the reader with everything he or she needs to meet those requirements for both health safety officers (HSOs) and incident safety officers (ISOs). The manual is divided according to discipline: Chapters 1-12 are for HSOs, Chapters 13-16 for ISOs. Chapters 2-16 all include learning activities designed to guide the reader through a practice exercise covering that chapter’s content. Each chapter also opens with a case history that illustrates a real world example of that chapter’s information in application. Finally, most chapters include end notes that guide the reader toward research that was used to develop portions of each chapter.
