Abstract:

"Stay focused on firefighter safety with this first edition of Building Construction: Knowing Your Buildings. An illustrative guide to building construction terms and concepts, this book is a valuable companion for learners as well as a handy reference for practicing fire service professionals.

In the following A-Z chapters, terms and definitions are organized alphabetically, and include photos, diagrams, drawings and charts to clearly explain and provide visual examples of building construction materials and techniques. Safety points are also highlighted throughout the book to explain the connection between building construction materials, fire growth and ultimately the safety of responding firefighters and fire officers."--Publisher's description.
