Euro Firefighter 2

This book is Paul Grimwood's follow-up to Euro Firefighter: Fire Tactics and Training Manual. In this new volume, he examines fire engineering and firefighting tactics to investigate how the ever-changing built environment is shaping current and future firefighting tactics, as well as how creative building design may assist firefighters in their work. In this book the author analyses 6,701 building fires occurring in the UK between 1984 and 2012. The outcomes of this research have effectively shaped specific national fire design guidance and firefighting tactics over the past twenty five years.

Euro Firefighter

Paul Grimwood has responded and worked from over a hundred fire stations in the USA and Europe. In this, his third book, he demonstrates how the very best strategies and tactical approaches from Europe and the USA may be effectively combined to enhance firefighter tactics and safety at structure fires. The book also covers and exceeds the 2007 syllabus of the European (UK) EDEXCEL CFBT Instructor Qualification (90 hours) for practical Fire Behavior Training (flashover training in ISO shipping containers and other FDS units). Euro Firefighter is for the CFBT instructor, firefighter, company officer and fire chief. The concept of teaching about flashover using ISO steel shipping containers was developed in Europe now read how European instructors teach fire behavior using a vast array of Fire Development Simulators (FDS). This book will also take you out onto the fire-grounds of London, New York, Madrid, Chicago, Paris, Germany and Sweden, demonstrating how similar fires are fought using different strategic approaches and showing how US and EURO firefighting tactics are gradually aligning in many areas. From tactical ventilation to air management, from Rapid Intervention Teams to high-rise firefighting and limited staffing, the author brings you the best tactics from Europe and the USA in one training manual! Written in such a way that the training officer can immediately transfer key learning points directly into training presentations, the core principles of this training package enhance firefighter safety on the fire-ground. The book also provides a LINK CODE for ongoing updates and web-based downloads. Euro Firefighter covers a broad range of issues important to anyone who steps off a fire truck at the scene of an emergency."

Crucible of Fire

In truth, many people, including some veteran firefighters, thought this to be the
case but withheld public comment. 5. William ... Paul Grimwood, Euro Firefighter (
West Yorkshire, England: Jeremy Mills Publishing Limited, 2008), 2–4. 2. Ibid., 4.

Crucible of Fire

Urban conflagrations, such as the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and the Great Boston Fire the following year, terrorized the citizens of nineteenth-century American cities. However, urban rebirth in the aftermath of great fires offered a chance to shape the future. Ultimately residents and planners created sweeping changes in the methods of constructing buildings, planning city streets, engineering water distribution systems, underwriting fire insurance, and firefighting itself. Crucible of Fire describes how the practical knowledge gained from fighting nineteenth-century fires gave form and function to modern fire protection efforts. Changes in materials and building design resulted directly from tragedies such as fires in supposedly fireproof hotels. Thousands of buildings burned, millions of dollars were lost, the fire insurance industry faltered, and the nature of volunteerism changed radically before municipal authorities took the necessary actions. The great fires formed a crucible of learning for firefighters, engineers, architects, underwriters, and citizens. Veteran firefighter Bruce Hensler shows how the modern American fire service today is a direct result of the lessons of history and a rethinking of the efficacy of volunteerism in fighting fires. Crucible of Fire is an eye-opening look at today's fire service and a thorough examination of what firefighters, civic leaders, and ordinary citizens can do to protect their homes and communities from the mistakes of the past.

Inside the Euro Crisis

In mid-2009 Simeon Djankov, who had dealt with a variety of economic and financial crises as chief economist for finance and private sector development at the World Bank, was suddenly thrust into the job of finance minister of his native Bulgaria. For nearly four years in that post, he attended more than 40 meetings of European finance ministers and had a front row seat at the intense discussions and struggles to overcome the economic and financial crisis that threatened to unravel the historic undertaking of an economically integrated Europe. In this personal account, Djankov details his odyssey on the front lines, observing Europe's fitful efforts to contain crises in Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, and France. He tells the inside story of how the European Central Bank assumed responsibility for the crisis, pledging to do "whatever it takes" to save the euro area. This candid book recounts the disagreements over fiscal austerity, monetary policy, and banking supervision, while focusing on the personalities who promoted progress—and those who opposed it. He also tells the dramatic story of the events that led to his own resignation as finance minister in 2013 over the policies he was pursuing to spare Bulgaria from getting sucked into the crisis.

Encyclopedia of International Games

The Olympic Games, revived in 1896, are the most well known international multisport gathering—but since 1896, hundreds of other competitions based on the Olympic Games model have been established whose histories have not been well documented. The Encyclopedia of International Games captures (in one alphabetical sequence) the histories of these games, many of them for the first time. The work includes major regional events such as the African, Asian, Arab, South Pacific, and Pan American Games; competitions such as the Indian Ocean Island Games, Arctic Winter Games, Island Games, and Games of the Small Countries of Europe; specific populations or professions such as the North American Indigenous Games, Maccabiah Games, World Military Games, World Police and Fire Games, and World Medical and Health Games; and Special Olympics, the Paralympics, games for the blind, and other regional games.

Saving Europe

In this gripping narrative, Carlo Bastasin reconstructs the main political decisions of the euro crisis, unveiling the hidden interests and the secret diplomacy behind the scene. The European dream was both the rejection of war and the creation of a new spirit of peaceful cooperation. Yet confrontation has been the hallmark of the euro crisis, and national opportunistic gimmicks have driven the awkward attempts to solve the crisis itself. Today, Europe is in a crisis of democracy, which Bastasin has dubbed, "the first War of Interdependence of the global age." Praise for the first edition of Saving Europe Bastasin does an admirable job in analysing the euro-zone's economic challenges and is a sure-footed guide through the seemingly endless European Union summit meetings that were supposed to resolve them. He also has an eye for the human detail that makes his sad account of institutional muddle surprisingly compelling. — Financial Times Bastasin's book is worth reading for its detailed political narrative of the eurozone crisis to date, focusing on the interaction among decision-makers in Europe's capitals. — Foreign Affairs A reconstruction that may be considered definitive. Revelations on the European negotiations are written with talent and go hand in hand with no-esoteric economic analysis and with the right amount of realism to reach the political substance. —Corriere della Sera Anyone looking for general knowledge and deeper understanding of the crisis, I can recommend a formidable analysis by Carlo Bastasin: Saving Europe. The author is a very unusual combination of a qualified economist and driven journalism. —Svenska Dagbladet
