FARS Education and Training Resources You Can Access Now

As more and more jurisdictions are adding FARS requirements to their local codes through adoption of Appendix L of the ICC 2015 International Fire Code, we thought this would be an opportune time to provide some links to FARS education and training resources available to the fire service. Below are links to three of the best. Many more are available on the RescueAir resource page here.

Download The New Edition
Of The FARS Training Manual 

The revised second edition of the Training Manual for Firefighter Air Replenishment Systems has just been released. It was co-written by Chief Ronny J. Coleman, former California State Fire Marshal and winner of the Tom Brennan Lifetime Achievement Award, and Chief Mario Trevino (ret.), who was the Chief in San Francisco when that city became one of the first in the country to adopt a FARS code. It provides a comprehensive look at FARS, from justification through proper utilization.  For a free downloadable copy, click here.
