The book opens with a description of the firefighter’s role, the important terminology he or she must understand, and the physical, medical, and written tests that every candidate must be able to pass for qualification. General advice and information for prospective firefighters includes physical fitness standards, and learning to recognize and correct weaknesses in visualization, spatial orientation, and more. A brand-new chapter in this edition covers mechanical reasoning, which today’s firefighter must be able to command.
