Okay, I have seen the threads for firefighter movies and music...what about Firefighter/EMS books? Or are they "no use"?


Personally I love reading!


Which have you read? Do you recommend any? If so, which ones?


I'll start~


I have read too many to count...here are a few that I can remember...(in no particular order)

  1. EMS: The Job of Your Life-Devin Kerins
  2. EMS:The Life of Your Job-(Same author)
  3. Paramedic:Buff to Burnt-George Steffensen
  4. The Night Angel Nine series
  5. Quick! How Do You Dial 9-1-1?-Randy Nickerson
  6. Most of the books by-Joan E. Lloyd and Edwin B. Herman
  7. Both books by-Peter Canning
  8. EMT Rescue-Pat Ivey
  9. The Fire Inside:Firefighters Talk About Their Lives-Steve Delsohn

3000 Degrees by Sean Flynn
Blood Fire, Brotherhood of the Badge, Undetermined Origin, and a few others that i have written as a fire-fiction writer. also like dennis smith, and some others. yes i'm looking to get them published
Can't wait to read them!!

Good Luck and Congratulations!!!
Report From Engine Company 82 by Dennis Smith. Very old book but very good reading in my opinion.
I also like "The Fire Inside." Definitely does a good job of portraying firefighting from many angles. I'd recommend it to anyone who was interested in becoming a firefighter or who wanted to understand firefighters better. I related to a lot of it and even learned from it.
very good book
So Others Might Live - by Terry Golway (history of FDNY 1700 to present
The Final Fire is a good one as well
Just finished this book. Good read but he is a little wordy.
