I purchased this book as a gift for my son when he became Fire Chief. It combines history and firefighting in such an interesting form. Its the kind of book you go back to read again and again.

I bought this book to donate to our school library in memory of my uncle, a retired fireman, who recently passed away. A very nice book.

This book gives the fire department its due credit. From the nostolgic bugles(the original claxon)to the modern scba, this book shows it all.

Dennis is the father of how firefighters communicate starting with his first firefighter related book, Report from Engine Co 82, founded Firehouse Magazine which all true firefighters have been collecting all their lives like me and have every issue. Anyways, this is a collection of past disasters and history of firefighting and Mr Smith shares his views. Great book and a must for the Dennis Smith book shelf.
love this
