Firefighting is combat and should be viewed as a warriorÂ’s calling.
Firefighters put themselves in harmÂ’s way to protect others, a selflessness rooted in the same noble drive as the military warriors who defend our nation.
This book about combat is meant to be a guide for those who seek to follow a warriorÂ’s path, the path of the fire service warrior.
TodayÂ’s firefighter must be a warrior who will unflinchingly put his very life in harmÂ’s way to accomplish a mission, but who is also fully informed about the path being chosen.
Embracing the philosophy of the fire service warrior, and striving for the ready positionÂ—the synthesis of physical and mental readiness that allows for optimum fireground performanceÂ—can reduce firefighter injuries and fatalities.
