Summary

"Going green" with new construction or adding "green" features to existing structures is excellent for the environment but it can pose challenges to the fire service. Written from the unique perspective of a fire chief, Sustainable Green Design and Firefighting delivers cutting-edge coverage to help fire and rescue workers develop strategies and tactics to deal with the challenges associated with energy-saving building materials. This comprehensive book familiarizes readers with sustainable and integrated design concepts and how they relate to the fire service, including topics on sustainable sites, water efficiency, alternative energy, natural refrigerants, light weight construction materials, and indoor environmental quality. An excellent training tool for new firefighters to fire chiefs, this text also features information on new technology such as microturbines, photovoltaic arrays, green roofs, and heliostats, ensuring that responders of all levels are fully prepared to engage in an incident involving a green structure.
