North Carolina Fire Law, Second Edition targets the legal issues confronting the state's firefighters, ranging from civil liability conflicts to the general statutes that provide punishments for various types of unlawful burning. Fire department activities that are discussed include: investigations, inspections, apparatus operation, mutual aid, nonprofit corporate activities, finance and district organization, employment law, benefits, and hazardous materials operations. This book is designed to be used both as a textbook for students and as a quick reference guide for anyone interested in North Carolina fire protection law.
The new edition includes two new, short chapters on NFPA 1403 and junior firefighters.
