Product description

Review

"High-Rise Security and Fire Life Safety is THE book to have on your desk. With all the information out there, this is the practical, day-to-day compendium for all your security and life safety concerns." --Jesse E. Peterman, Director of Security, Empire State Building, New York, NY USA<br /><br />'With this book, author Geoff Craighead takes on a dauntingly wide-ranging and potentially dry topic and renders a comprehensive and thoroughly engaging work. The author demonstrates in-depth knowledge of various topics, but wisely devotes greater attention to the more important ones, and always keeps the work flowing...This well-edited book will serve as a reliable reference source to all high-rise practitioners of fire/life-safety, building operations, and security, from the front-line worker to corporate executive. Its lively writing style is an added bonus for readers used to leaden prose in books of this type.'
Security Management --Review

PRAISE FOR THE THIRD EDITION:

"Outstanding book. Tons of facts and graphs. Some of the best historical information that I have seen in a book in years. Extensive research utilized as well as many great references used throughout the book." - Mark H. Beaudry, CPP, author of Contemporary Lodging Security

"The third edition of High-Rise Security and Fire Life Safety is extraordinarily thorough. It is not possible to think of an issue relating to high-rise building security that has not been covered." - Dennis O. Challinger, Fellow of the Criminology Department, University of Melbourne, Australia; author of From the Ground Up: Security for Tall Buildings.

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:
