FIREFIGHTER'S Little Black Book

FirefightersÕs Little Black Book is a compilation of descriptive behaviors that those who are currently serving in the fire service, or have already served a career in the fire service, are quite familiar with in one way or another. I wrote this quick and easy read to act as a daily reminder for everyone on the job as to what is expected of us on and off the job by our family, co-workers, and ultimately our bosses, and the citizens we are sworn to protect and serve, just what will be tolerated by all of them. It is to provoke knowing how critical it is to have our integrity, ethics, and morals in check means to our overall lifeÕs outcomes. I share my personal failures with you all in an attempt to hopefully Òstop you in your tracksÓ and not cross over those dangerous lines. Lines that if you do cross could end your career and destroy your life.

Wildfire and Americans
8,40 CHF *

Three years after Roger Kennedy retired as director of the National Park Service, from his Santa Fe home he watched as the Cerro Grande Fire moved across the Pajarito Plateau and into Los Alamos. Two hundred and thirty-five homes were destroyed, more than 45,000 acres of forest were burned, and the nation's nuclear laboratories were threatened; even before the embers had died a blame game erupted. Kennedy's career as a public servant, which encompasses appointments under five presidential administrations, convinced him that the tragedy would produce scapegoats and misinformation, and leave American lives at risk. That was unacceptable, even unforgivable. Wildfire and Americans is a passionate, deeply informed appeal that we acknowledge wildfire not as a fire problem but as a people problem. Americans are in the wrong places, damningly because they were encouraged to settle there. Politicians, scientists, and CEOs acting out of patriotism, hubris, and greed have placed their fellow countrymen in harm's way. And now, with global warming, we inhabit a landscape that has become much more dangerous. Grounded in the conviction that we owe a duty to our environment and our fellow man, Wildfire and Americans is more than a depiction of policies gone terribly awry. It is a plea to acknowledge the mercy we owe nature and mankind.

This book is intended to take over from where my first firefighter preparation book 'The Future Firefighter's Preparation Guide,' left off. That book was intended on providing the future firefighter with a road map of what to do when starting out the journey to becoming a firefighter. This book is intended to provide more focus on what to expect and more importantly, how to be successful at the firefighter testing process, which can vary from department to department. This book will help future firefighters by providing a road map of how to best navigate the firefighter testing process, so that they are successful in obtaining a position in the best career I am so fortunate to be a part of, a career in the fire service! If you have prepared for the position of firefighter by doing many of the things I suggested in 'The Future Firefighter's Preparation Guide,' and follow the suggestions within this book, your chances for success will greatly increase!
