Stories of Fire is the saga of brave and inventive firefighters from the earliest formations of the fire service, to those making yesterday’s headlines. It is filled with heroic rescues, difficult challenges, and determined battles. From the days of the hand pumpers, to the age of horses, to motorization, the equipment has changed but the mission has not. With the advent of aerial and scaling ladders the reach became greater, as did the danger. Advances in breathing protection allowed firefighters to plunge even deeper into the swirling heat. Ship fires, building collapses and even the bomb filled start of a war, required a special commitment firefighters continue to make.
Stories of Fire is 247 pages of action, with 36 photos and illustrations.
This soft cover book is only $25 plus $3.99 shipping & handling.
Autographed by author!

Received in a quick timely manner. As for the book. It's full of amazing stories of the firemen of the FDNY. Hard to believe what they accomplished without the turnout gear, scba which is in common use today. Well written book by Paul Hashagen.

I loved the history of some of the equipment and techniques that are still used in today's fire service. Stories of the brave men that did this job way before me are very good. Yes, the book arrived within a few days of ordering.

Thanks again!
