A must read for the Fire Ground Officer 23 Oct. 2007
By Roger Waters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Finally a new tactic that is both safe and effective. Positive Pressure Attack is a tactic that is growing throughout the country and this book presents PPA in a direct, no nonsense manner. Chief Garcia and Chief Kauffmann explain the importance of considering PPA for any interior fire attack. A must read for the fire ground Officer.

PPA Book Review 22 Oct. 2007
By PPV Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A complete study of structural firefighting ventilation that covers the history, physics and tactics of fireground ventilation techniques. A thorough explanation of the technique of Postitive Pressure Ventilation (PPV) and its application as a fire attack tool (PPA). For skeptics of PPV/PPA, this book will answer every question and dispel every myth. For students of PPA/PPV, this is their first textbook. Written in layman's terms but not so basic that an engineer won't find something to wrap their mind around. THE book on positive pressure ventilation.
Great Concept. 6 April 2008
By Daniel C. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The authors have a fantastic concept with the PPA. It is well thought out and well researched. I think for fire departments in the north east that are unfortunatly forced to use 3 firefighters on an engine company the concept is just that. The engine company I am assigned to would love to be able to affect a quick attack as described in this book but we just do not have the manpower to do so. The change has to start with the basics that public safety is #1. I think the only minor flaw I see in the book is that, there apears to be a bias towards one fan manufacturer. I do however understand the concept of sponsors.
