Paperback: $21.51

When an organization moves away from a generations-long tradition of being all-male toward a future that includes men and women equally, a significant change takes place. Change can be upsetting and... More > threatening to those who are used to, and invested in, the way things “have always been.” Fire may know no gender, but people do, and the fire chief of the 1990’s spends more time managing people than controlling fire. Increasing numbers of women are becoming firefighters and fire officers, entering and advancing in a field that is still heavily male by both population and tradition. Fire service leaders who are not prepared to manage these workforce changes may find their workforce is managing them instead.< Less

Firefighters’s 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... More > 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 life’s outcomes. I share my personal failures with you all in an attempt to hopefully “stop you in your tracks” and not cross over those dangerous lines. Lines that if you do cross could end your career and destroy your life.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
A retired Fire Captain from a Boston suburb shares over 150 stories from his 33-year career. Get a glimpse into a life that few outside of the profession ever see—that of a firefighter—by... More > a man who has lived it. LeBlanc brings you along as he shares his experiences: the camaraderie—and conflict—within the firehouse; the feeling of satisfaction in a job well done (perhaps...saving a life); and the agony of loss. Expect a roller coaster ride. The book continuously transitions from the ridiculous to the sublime; one story will be incredibly amusing, the next will leave you experiencing the same sense of loss as Mr. LeBlanc obviously felt. No matter what size department you work on, people are people and you can't make this stuff up. Perfect for those who dream of a career as firefighter, or those who would like to learn (and be entertained) more about the behind-the-scenes, day-to-day situations encountered by these brave heroes.< Less
