Firefight [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:

The #1 New York Times bestseller and sequel to Steelheart from Brandon Sanderson, the author of Oathbringer, coauthor of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn trilogy, presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight. And don't miss Calamity, the exciting conclusion to the Reckoners series! Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart--invincible, immortal, unconquerable--is dead. And he died by David's hand. Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers. Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic Regalia, Babylon Restored is flooded and miserable, but David is sure it's the path that will lead him to what he needs to find. Entering a city oppressed by a High Epic despot is risky, but David's willing to take the gamble. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic--Firefight. And now he will go on a quest darker and even more dangerous than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers. Praise for the Reckoners Series: #1 New York Times Bestselling Series "Another win for Sanderson . . . he's simply a brilliant writer. Period." --Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Name of the Wind "Action-packed." --EW.com "Compelling. . . . Sanderson uses plot twists that he teases enough for readers to pick up on to distract from the more dramatic reveals he has in store." --The A.V. Club

When Shadows Fall: A firefight romance with an emotional twist by Barbara Freethy Book Resume:

"Barbara Freethy is always at the top of her game writing a suspenseful, heartwarming story from start to finish. WHEN SHADOWS FALL is truly a page turner you don't want to put down and it will warm your heart." Faye Olivia Bennett is a biographer, a narrator of lives far more interesting than her own. When she volunteers to write down the memories of Eleanor Callaway, an elderly woman suffering from Alzheimer's, she gets caught up in a compelling story of a great love and a terrible secret. Suddenly, she is no longer a spectator but an investigator, and in her quest for the truth, she not only finds herself at odds with Eleanor's sexy and very protective grandson Colton Callaway, but she also discovers a more personal connection to Eleanor's past. Colton is a firefighter, a man used to going after what he wants and getting it. He pushes the limits, takes chances, and is willing to risk everything to save a life, especially if that life belongs to his grandmother. As Olivia and Colton stir up the smoldering embers of the past, they soon come to realize that the greatest danger may not come from those who want to protect their secrets, but from each other. The one thing neither of them has ever been willing to risk is their heart. What the readers are saying… "I am left speechless. Each Callaway makes me fall in love a bit more. In WHEN SHADOWS FALL, Colton and Olivia are perfection. They shine brightly and leave you with no doubts about their HEA.Thank you Barbara Freethy for another well written heart touching testament to all that is good and right in our world." Shannon "Barbara Freethy does it again, with characters so real and a mystery that has been simmering through the series. The idea that someone getting who you really are can be life changing is very real for me. A great story. I'd recommend it for anyone who enjoys Nora Roberts, Marie Force, Robyn Carr or Susan Mallery." Libby "I found WHEN SHADOWS FALL intriguing, fun and full of hope. I like how all the characters of the Callaway family are mentioned and entwined into the story but the author never loses focus on the main characters . I always look forward to her next story." Christy "This series is awesome! Barbara Freethy is an amazing author who brings you into the book like you are part of the family. Not having a big family, I really love reading all the family dynamics and the characters are just great! If you haven't read anything by Barbara Freethy, go get something, you will not be disappointed."

Positive Pressure Attack for Ventilation & Firefighting

Firefight [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Positive Pressure Attack for Ventilation & Firefighting by Kriss Garcia,Reinhard Kauffmann,Raymond Schelble,Ray Schelble Book Resume:

In the past decades, lightweight building construction methods and the use of manmade materials in construction and furnishings have become more and more common. The time until structural failure can be expected in a fire has been reduced, and firefighters have seen hotter fires that generate high levels of deadly gasses. But the ventilation methods used by modern firefighters have not kept pace. Positive pressure was first used in the fire service to ventilate a structure after the fire was knocked down. Authors Kriss Garcia and Reinhard Kauffmann have taken positive pressure a step further to achieve effective ventilation in coordination with aggressive fire attack, called positive pressure attack (PPA). Properly used PPA allows firefighters great control over the interior environment of a fire building, and starts at the earliest stages of the operation when ventilation can provide the greatest benefit for victims, firefighters, and the structure. With a small investment in equipment and a commitment to training, any fire department can implement PPA at the company level. Subjects covered in this book include: • Basics of positive pressure and how to maximize its effectiveness for fireground ventilation. • PPA: how effective ventilation can be coordinated to support an aggressive fire attack. • Safety considerations and limitations of PPA and positive pressure. • Other ways positive pressure blowers can be used to help victims and firefighters in a variety of situations. • Implementing PPA on a department, and how to train each engine company to become its own firefighting force that can accomplish both ventilation and fire attack.

Peabody Firefighting

Firefight [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Peabody Firefighting by Ted Quinn Book Resume:

The Peabody Fire Department was established in 1868, when the town changed its name from South Danvers to Peabody after one of its favorite sons: well-known philanthropist George Peabody. However, its long-standing history of being a first-class department dates farther back to the purchase of the towns first hand engine, the Federal No. 1, in 1800, and even farther back with the formation of bucket brigades and fire clubs. Peabodys long history of being the leather capital of the world parallels the fire departments history, because many of the departments members worked in the leather factories or were leather shop owners. These same leather factories were fodder for many general alarm fires. Peabody Firefighting features photographs and narratives that showcase the history and evolution of the Peabody Fire Department, a department that today is as rich in diversity and tradition as ever and continues to answer the call of duty to a multitude of emergencies.

New York City Firefighting

Firefight [Pdf/ePub] eBook

New York City Firefighting by Steven Scher Book Resume:

The story of firefighting in New York City is one of danger, tradition, pride, excitement, and tragedy. It is also the story of man's triumph over destructive forces. From the gaslight days of horse-drawn steam engines to the World Trade Center tragedy of 2001, the heroic men and women who make up the city's most dynamic public service have risked and often lost their lives in order to protect and serve the people of New York City. New York City Firefighting: 1901-2001 chronicles the proudest fire department in America. The proximity of buildings in the city streets and the construction materials made each fire especially dangerous, but determined firefighters never hesitated to battle the flames and rescue the victims. Later, facing unprecedented heights and unparalleled danger, firefighters in New York City were called upon to battle infernos in the first skyscrapers, often using the most rudimentary equipment and barely protected from the flames. In its most trying moments, the Fire Department of New York responded to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 1993 and 2001, dutifully rushing into the towers to save as many lives as possible and ultimately losing hundreds of their own.
