Interesting question regarding science in the fire service! As you may have noticed from the comments, there seems to be a general idea that experience is a lot (!) more important than science and reading books. I do not fully agree: experience is important, but it has to go hand in hand with science. In a lot of cases science can explain why things happens as they do. I know a lot of people (from all over the world) who have a lot of experience, but since they've never read a book they don't have a clue on what's going on at a fire scene. I also have a lot of un'experienced friends with a scientific background or with a good eye for science who I would trust my life to any day. And regarding writing books: books for the fire service shouldn't (generelly) tell people how to do things (they can figure that out for themselves). Books should be on why (as I think you indicated)! Have a look at Ed Hartins blog, at Good stuff!

Keep up the good work!

Oregon eh? That's cool. Ha that's a long ways away from my little town here in NC, haha.

I'm sure that physics will come in handy somewhere. I know what you mean about the unexpected love of firefighting, I'm in that same boat.

I actually am a tutor for the state of NC and I teach math and reading for grades K-8, but I'm working on my paramedic certification as well, hoping to get on with a career Fire/EMS department in the next year or so.

Good luck with your last semester! Trust me, it goes by quicker than you want it to, haha. God Bless!!
