This honest, straight powerful memoir is a riveting account of what it's like to work as a professional firefighter, from rookie to chief officer, during a 31 year career. The stories are funny, sad, and grim; all serve to educate the reader about a profession that many dreamed about as a child but would never truly understand unless they've donned the gear and climbed aboard the engine. From crawling down a hot, smoky hallway looking for victims, to cutting people out of mangled cars, to practical jokes that only a firefighter could think of, this book describes everything in vivid detail. Chief Howes brings to the reader a better understanding and renewed respect for the men and women firefighters who protect our communities. The author is donating 10% of royalties to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation, the nonprofit group dedicated to the development and expansion of programs to honor our fallen fire heroes and assist their families and coworkers.
