Practical advice, based on real-life experiences, to keep first-arriving companies out of harm's way. Too often, a "routine" incident is much more than is first dispatched, or first evident on arrival, whether fire, rescue, EMS, or public-assist. DeLisi's mission in this book is to give first-due companies enough information so that they keep themselves and their constituents safe. Whether it's recognizing the early stages of an incident that can go bad, or learning how to mitigate an already bad incident so it doesn't get worse, DeLisi's years of experience and scenarios will drive home the need for liberal application of the "let's look a little farther" mentality that keeps people safer. Lots of examples and side-bar scenarios illustrate the points he makes and provide lessons from first responders who won (or lost) the battle with hazardous materials at calls.
