"Leadership for the Wildland Fire Officer has been written for the firefighter who wants to learn what it takes to be a fire officer, firefighter who will be attending leadership training and desires to prepare for the class, fire officer who wants to review leadership techniques, fire officer who is about to take on a new role in wildland firefighting. There are three distinct parts to the book. The first part of the book focuses on the art of leadership, safety, situational awareness, decision-making, and plan development. Whenever possible, the art of leadership is tied to firefighting. The second part focuses on command and control and operations and how leadership is vital to safe and effective firefighting. The last section reviews fourteen fires where firefighters were in harm's way and some of them died. Understanding the 'lessons learned' is critical to recognition of unsafe acts." --Publisher's description
