Simone Cave and Caroline Fertleman d evero it This shows what sacrifices firefighters have to make and what it takes to be a firefighter I would recommend this book to high schoolers because it is a fun read and also very action packed and interesting I also recommend it to high Schoolers Because If Anyone Is because if anyone is a job as a firefighter it would be a good read because it explains and portrays what the life of a firefighter really is like A good book that peels back the curtain a bit on what it s like to be a firefighter The author looks at the parts the public Babys on Fire doesn t see andoes a good job of sharing the good the bad and the ugly sides of being a firefighter Good read Unlike most of the other firefighting books I ve read this one focuses almost exclusively on the training period Unger had while learning the ropes of exclusively on the training period Unger had while learning the ropes of as the book title suggests He is a rookie throughout so even once he finishes the training academy his experiences working in a firehouse are peppered with lessons and words of advice from his colleagues A good portion of the early book is focused on the training academy for firefighters in Oakland CA While Unger Randolf Emmanuel Fontanilla (The Billionaire Boys Club, describes himself as an accidental fireman in the title and backs it up by saying he learned about the opportunity from a flyer in a bus stop he was a young guy who seemed to haveone a few odd jobs here and there Game for Life during and since college but I could see how those experiences could steer a man towards a career in firefighting Compared to his fellow trainees at the academy Unger alsoidn t come with a family pedigree the latest in many generations of firefighters instead growing up in a white collar Jewish family and graduating from an exclusive private high school in Oakland instead of the rougher public ones that most of the others came from so he feels like an outsider at first but once all the gear is on the job is the sameUnger talks a little bit about his first firehouse where he really მოთხრობები didn t fit in if for no other reason than to contrast it with the firehouse where heid most of his training and found the bond common among groups of firemen and women There he found guys committed to their jobs and each other as well as the occasional commander who Flames of the Dark Crystal demonstrated how NOT to lead his men so both this good and the bad shaped him as he went out onto each call Unger expressed how few of his calls were for actual fires that many people picture the job of a firefighter involving insteadoing many medical calls false alarms wildfires and fires where the building involved was either too far gone to One Night at the Lake do anything but let burn to the ground or small such that only the first men on the scene were needed to attack it He also addresses the tragedy of losing one of his fellow firefighters a guy he barely knew but learned a lot from in the short time they spent together in a building collapse and the outpouring of support the fireepartment experienced at his funeralOverall it was an enjoyable uick read i would have liked enjoyable uick read I would have liked few photos to be able to see the faces of the brave men and women he The Hero Next Door describes and some of the euipment because it s a lot easier to comprehend what he means when he talks about 6 people needed to operate a 50 foot ladder if there is a picture of said people working with the ladder. Eyes From the raw material of hisays’ work alarm calls both harrowing and hilarious moments of triumph and grief Unger has forged a timeless story of finding one’s path and a rousing adventure about the bravery and sacrifice of everyday heroes.

new experience to spend the winter out there in my own little beach cottage on the sheltered Peconic Bay The combination of constant tides and freezing temperatures results in the steady build up of enormous untidy piles of ice near the shore Wandering out onto the iceburgs is good clean winter fun as long as you American Musicians don t go too far out onto thin ice Those colder months also

hot in here Nelly The wind was literally screaming that night and I had packed the stove full of oak before retiring But it was feeling way too hot in the bedroom when I suddenly woke up and crawled

re a fireman the closest thing there is in this world to being a superhero Richie Partington MLISRichie s Picks Not sure why this got a 39 I found this book Zac s story very enlightening entertaining and well balanced in the sense of the honesty it conveyed about the job and calling of firefighting Great story well told Zac Unger grew up in Oakland California with aesire to rescue people He channeled that into scuba Speer diving and studying to become a forest ranger until his mother encouraged him to become a firemanRather than telescoping chapters that evolve from one another Working Fire unfolds in a series of essays This makes for some odd jumps in time where the reader senses uite a lot must have happened to get Unger where he was when the story unfolded One of those leaps seems central to the point of the memoirYou would think that a book called Working Fire would be primarily about fire its colors its hungers its beauties andangers Several fires Ultralearning do appear in the pages of Unger s memoir as breathless set pieces that completely absorb the reader But though Unger continued to work as a fireman at some point he grew bored with waiting for fire to break out He went back for his paramedic certification so that he could actively save the lives of people who The Ring Of The Dove dialed 911 The paradigm shift from saving buildings to saving people is huge but isn t explored in anyetail The only training Unger recounts here is his initial academy experience before joining his first firehouse The point of that story seems to be that one needs to suppress any individuality one has in order to succeed In terms of being a fireman it is an important lesson but The Lost Literature of Medieval England doesn t suit the arc of the book as much as exploring how he chose to get his hands bloody might haveThe fires Unger chooses to recount are strange ones the time he got lost in a smoky basement full of pipes and survived only because the other firemen got the flames put out the fire they couldn t reach because the hose was too short a grass fire in the Oakland hills finally a real battle inside an apartment I would have been happy with story after story about facing fireThat said the most emotionally intense event in the book involves no fire at all Unger s firetruck was summoned to an accident on the Oakland freeways A woman was pinned inside her black luxury car by the engine block in her lap As the firemen struggled to free her Unger crouched beside her and told her they were going to get her out One of the ambulance medics warns him to step back as soon as they pull theashboard away from her That s when they always bleed out It s like they wait until you re ready to save them and then they just A Curse of Kings die on you Like it s a choice the unfortunate victim makes In the end the ambulance took the woman away and Unger never knew if she survivedThe heart of Unger s book comes in the chapter called Things I Wish I Didn t Know In it his prose approaches poetry Fire fighting is not about the fire It s about the save It s about keeping the flames from licking tooeeply into a vulnerable life and wreaking havoc there In his final chapter he spells it out Fire fighting isn t really about fire in the same way that police work Is Obsessed With CrimeFire Fighting obsessed with crimeFire fighting not about the thing we conuer but about the things we save It s a Garfield Dishes It Out (Garfield, distinction that Iidn t understand until reading Unger s book He crosses himself then kisses his wedding ring and I make a mental note to Im a Narwhal develop a ritual for myself some sort of secular facsimile of prayer that I can use before I go running into a burning building 2Firefighters are like astronauts or medicaloctors to me I m never going to be one and that s just Madame Timide dandy but in the meantime I ll happily read a whole bunch about themNow as the subtitle suggests Ungeridn t expect to be

Bismillah Soup didn t want to be tied to theesk job that he was heading towardsIs Unger really so ifferent than his contemporaries Probably not Differences in background yes but as he tells it he basically fit in fine His reservations ease over time he acclimates to the banter and the reality that firefighting is at least 75% non fire related uties But he spins a good story from the training
