Nothing stirs the blood like the flashing lights and blaring siren of a fire truck racing to fight a blaze. The action photography in this book captures that excitement in all of its forms. In powerful, on-the-scene pictures and text, author/photographer Shapiro explores the special techniques and equipment brought to bear on fires in cities and suburbs, rural outposts and wilderness, in homes and industrial structures. He also takes a close look at hair-raising rescues and other “non-firefighting” tasks that firefighters find themselves facing. From bold photography and detailed descriptions of fire fighting to close-up looks at the fire house and its full array of equipment--trucks, ladders, pumpers, and tankers--this book conveys both the technical nitty-gritty and the fiery action of meeting and containing one of nature’s most brutal forces.

To live in the foothills on the periphery of the Sierra National Forest is to live with the certainty of summer wildfires. Each year, from April forward, Californians watch the sky and sniff the air for telltale signs of smoke. While fire remains a constant threat, the strategy for combating it has evolved with the understanding of its beneficial role in the forest environment. Marcia Penner Freedman traces the history of firefighting and fire management from the forest's early years through the policy shifts that began in the 1960s and the measures used today.

Micah Landry has lived in his brother's shadow his entire life, working side-by-side, but also waiting for a chance to make his mark. After tragedy strikes and an offer he can't refuse lands in his lap, he takes it as a sign to take the leap and go out on his own. It seems as if everything he's ever wanted is falling into place-he's getting the restaurant and he's got the girl. But when he loses sight on what's important, he's faced with the decision of a lifetime-his dream or his family. Nothing in life worth having comes easy, but when you lose everything you love in the process, who's left to share it with? Fire is a fickle bitch. It comes in all shapes and sizes. The power held within its heat and flames can either create something strong and beautiful or destroy everything in its path. Sometimes it does both without you even realizing it.

'Generic Risk Assessment 3.5 - Fighting Fires in Farms' is part of a series of Generic Risk Assessments (GRAs) that is the product of a ten year consultation period. The GRAs have been designed to safeguard Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) personnel and members of the public. This assessment examines the hazards, risks and control measures relating to Fire and Rescue Service personnel, the personnel of other agencies and members of the public when fighting fires in farms. This assessment considers the full range from smallholdings to large farms that undertake a wide variety of activities. There are significant hazards which face Fire and Rescue Service personnel at farm fires. Chapters within this GRA include: access; the nature, construction and condition of farm buildings and farms; hazardous substances and materials stored or used on the farm; electrical power supplies; machinery, workshops, silos, barns and stores; water pits, slurry pits and lagoons; work at height; animals and insects; biological hazards including animal waste (solid, liquid) and bio-aerosols; stacked materials; non-Fire and Rescue Service personnel. Depending on the nature and scale of the operational incident a variety of significant hazards may be present. Therefore contents of other specific Generic Risk Assessments may also need to be considered.
