Fire Protection Technology: Find Articles

Resources for students interested in firefighter training and fire safety instruction

Unsure how to find articles?

 Try our study guide Finding Periodical Articles.

Why use periodical articles?

Periodicals cover events more quickly and concisely than books

Books are usually better at giving thoughtful, historical information. Magazines and newspapers provide current, focused information, and specialized magazines and journals provide in-depth coverage.

Periodical articles are usually on specific topics

Many topics do not have entire books written about them (or the specific information you need is buried within a book).
