Description

Preface

                  Fireman career is extraordinary challenging throughout life. It is also a Service to mankind in various forms. Fireman’s career therefore requires development of specialized skills and practice to carry out day to day discharge of normal and exiting work. This book gives latest knowledge and practical insight to the Subject. This book covers latest all University syllabus and practices to meet the requirements of one year, “Fire Engineering course” and therefore as a practical guide and treasure to meet the day to day practical of a fireman.
This book is unique in coverage, covering the syllabus as well as reckoner for developing. A fireman and therefore should be possessed by all persons working in this trade.
Suggestion for improvement and rectification of errors and omissions will be gratefully accepted.
