Welcome to the world of firefighting - the camaraderie, the challenges, the defeats, and the triumphs. Within
these pages walk alongside firefighters and fire officers as they fight fires, face career-altering decisions, and
learn critical lessons that forever change their perception on what it means to be a firefighter. Chicago
Battalion Chief and 27-year service member Steve Chikerotis shares stories drawn from some of the most
respected firefighters in the nation to convey valuable lessons on safety, risk management, education and
awareness. Over 45 exciting short stories unfold each heart-pounding incident, promoting the development of
crucial life-saving instincts and leadership skills as well as inviting readers to develop a sense of appreciation
for the life of a firefighter.


  • stories are true depictions of actual events that seek to teach the importance of learning from past and current events to prevent accidents and fatalities in the future
  • each short story is accompanied by a summary of the lessons learned to allow readers to focus on the decisions and attitudes that influence the outcome of an incident - great for promotional lists
  • discussion questions encourage aspiring and experienced firefighters to develop critical problem-solving skills in order to promote safety, professionalism, and leadership on the job
  • photos and diagrams from the actual events accompany the stories, providing a sense of realism as each firefighter tells his or her story
  • a list of "firefighter lingo" and accompanying definitions is provided as a reference to readers who may not be familiar with the fire service but wish to fully appreciate and understand the stories
