A 30-year veteran of the fire service, Chief Avillo has updated his widely adopted book, Fireground Strategies. The new third edition of Fireground Strategies is written from the viewpoint of the fire officer who must identify a strategy, develop an action plan, and implement tactics to meet that plan's objectives. Used together, Fireground Strategies and the Scenarios Workbook provide reinforcing guides for assuming a role on the fireground and making decisions aimed at bringing the incident to a safe and successful conclusion.

The new Third Edition includes expanded incident command chapters; new street-level strategies focusing on the modern fire environment; the latest attack/ventilation study information; expanded resource management and risk management sections; strategic considerations of solar panels; new case studies; and more!
