Fires cause tremendous losses every year in which many people are killed and property worth billions is destroyed. Obviously, fire services in India remain extremely backward. While the world has developed absolutely astounding fire engines, extinguishers and numerous other implements of fire-fighting, Indian fire services have remained almost unchanged for a long time. All of us have seen the fire brigade at work; have seen their flashing red vehicles; and have heard their distinctive bells or sirens. However, our acquaintance with the fire brigade ends at that. Nearly 75% of fires in homes are caused by electrical problems. Yet most people do not know what type of extinguisher must be used on electrical fires. The wrong type can electrocute you. In short, we do not know anything about the fire-fighters, their equipment or their techniques of working. This book presents a hitherto mysterious subject in most lucid style with a large number of very rare and informative illustrations which make the subject extremely interesting. The contents includes: • The Basics of Fire • Various Systems of Extinguishing Fires • The Complexities of Real Life Fires • Personal Protective Equipment for Fire-Fighting • Fire Engines, Pumps, Hoses, Nozzles and Ladders • Responding to Fire Calls • How they Operate The Pumps, Hoses and Ladders • Demystifying the Working of the Fire Brigade • Structural Fires or Fires In Buildings • Coping with Aircraft Accidents And Fires • Explosives, Chemicals and Forest Fires • Realistic Training for Fire-Fighters • Various Types of Rescue Operations by Fire-Fighters • Glossary of Technical Terms Used in Fire-Fighting • Index Since fires can strike and destroy just about anybody’s home, office, shop, business or factory, this book concerns everybody and must be read by all—house-owners, housewives, government offices, students, researchers, journalists, businessmen, shop owners, factory owners, as well as professional fire-fighters for their own protection.
