BUY THIS BOOK, OR DEMAND THE INFORMATION FROM YOUR DEPARTMENT LEADERS

I feel it is a very sad reflection on the Fire Service that someone with two and one half decades of experience steps up to offer what every departments senior Firemen, unit commanders and Captains should be doing for their new members. 
 
In the short preface to his book he establishes the sad truth about probational Firefighters who have been cut from their departments because, quote ; " most of the time the mistakes weren't really their fault". Then the blame should have been cast onto their department leaders, not them. 
 
This is the type of foolish nonsense that is responsible for so many departments across our country being understaffed. The cry is heard daily about recruits giving up or the community has too few willing souls to step up and volunteer to begin with, and this is why. I train my people, not "ambush" them. I encourage those who know to offer to those who do not, for free too, not by selling the information like the author of this book is doing. No one fails in my Fire Brigade, they are all given as much training as needed until they get it right.
 
To me that is the whole idea of "family" and "Brotherhood".

Fire suppressant delivery system,.. Firemen,.. FIRE. It is just that simple, but as the author of this book explains, there are many more areas of understanding needed to be mastered if a person is going to become a "good fit" in a department.

The many issues surrounding the extreme egos, insecurities and self esteem that so many in public service who ascend to leadership positions have are but some of the hurdles, so I feel those already in each department who have coped with these people successfully should be the ones to help the new hires learn how to cope.

No one should have to get blanket suggestions from a source who knows nothing of your area of the country, community traditions and social norms when there are seasoned members in every department who know exactly what you need to do as a new hire.
