The most current and up-to-date handbook on the equipment, procedures, and techniques to fight maritime fires on any size of vessel. Mixing the old with the new, this new text on maritime firefighting presents the reader with valuable and current information. For too long, mariners have been using outdated books to train on and relying on one-to-three-day refresher courses that barely scratch the surface of the true scope of the hazards of shipboard fires. Contained herein is the culmination of years of research and industry collaboration to provide a fresh look at an old subject. The threat of shipboard fires has not gone anywhere, but how we fight and prepare for them has. AUTHORS: Matthew Bonvento is a maritime professional and educator who specializes in maritime safety and regulations. Matt is a tenured assistant professor of nautical science at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. Emil Muccin is recently retired from the United States Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, New York, where he was an associate professor in nautical science. Emil is the author and presenter of many articles, including a recent joint venture on maritime bridge distractions. 40 colour images
