AuthorHouse, 12.06.2007 - 368 Seiten
In this book, the third installment of his memoir trilogy, the author tells us about his twenty-eight-year career as a frontline firefighter, lieutenant and battalion chief with the Columbus, Ohio Fire Department. Exciting tales of many large scale fires and various other memorable emergencies are vividly related, told against the backdrop of the author’s progression through the ranks. Also, a good bit of historical perspective concerning the everyday life of a Columbus, Ohio firefighter during the sixties, seventies, and eighties has been added. The author recounts many of the personal challenges and unavoidable sacrifices that he was faced with during his career and tells of several heartbreaking events that he experienced during his time of service. In addition, stories detailing the lighter side of life as a firefighter are related, seamlessly interspersed with the usual life-and-death emergency aspects of this highly respected profession. The end result is that the reader comes away with a fairly accurate, well-rounded picture of a firefighter’s day-to-day activities and can perhaps get a pretty good idea of just how rewarding and fulfilling a career in firefighting can be.
