  • Power Point Presentations for "Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skills 3rd Edition"

    Not sure if this was the correct forum to place this topic but I didn't see a general education section. I personally like to make chapter outlines as we move through the book and can't find the power point presentations anywhere

    Thanks for your help,

    are you teaching a class ? I guess I don't quite understand . Are you just teaching from the book ? power point is pretty easy to use -make your own presentation - scan some from the book -take some photos of stuff locally such as your depts. equipment.

      If there are specific PPT presentations for Essentials, I'm sure they're available from the publisher - for a price.
      Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

        I like to use the slides and create chapter outlines for each chapter. In power point you can select outline view and highlight all of the text from each slide then copy and paste them to a word document and everything is laid out perfectly with the slides on 3 -4 pages. All bulletin points stay formatted when you paste in word, This enables me to focus on the instructor instead of trying to write down information from the slides. I asked the instructor for the slides and its been five days and no slides, just figured I would give this a shot. I've found a couple chapters but not all of them are online. I did the same thing with EMT and realized it was easier to stay engaged with the instructor/class instead of writing the whole time.

          Perhaps the instructor is unwilling to give you purchased copy writed material due to his employers polices or due to legalities.
          Crazy, but that's how it goes
          Millions of people living as foes
          Maybe it's not too late
