  • Fire Fighting Dictionary?

    Does anyone know of a dictionary or descriptive publication detailing different names for fire fighting equipment, apparatus, fire dept organization etc. One of my students here says he saw one on the net a few years ago, but can't remember where, I'm not even sure if this was an American publication. They are interested in different terminologies around the world eg pumper, engine, responder, water ladder. brigade, company, dept etc.
    Thanks for any info

    Here's the book...

    IFSTA Fire Service Orientation and Terminology.

    Available for $25.00 at www.ifsta.org

    This manual acquaints new firefighters with the history, traditions, terminology, organization, and operation of the fire service. It also contains typical job and operation descriptions that should provide insight into the inner workings of the fire service. It describes the fire service as a career; explains fire service organizations; and covers fire department organization, equipment, and facilities.

    Orientation contains a list of NFPA standards that commonly apply to the fire service, plus a fire service dictionary with over 2,500 fire-related terms. The information in this manual also is applicable to the general knowledge requirements (objective 3-1.1.1) in NFPA 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, 1997 edition

    Fire service survival tips:
    1) Cook at 350...
    2) Pump at 150...
    3) When in doubt, isolate and deny entry...
    4) When in trouble, claim lack of adult supervision.
