Local Heroes

Local Heroes: Portraits of American Volunteer Firefighters is an inspiring book packed with stories and pictures of some of this nation’s most heroic individuals. My husband was a volunteer firefighter for fourteen years and is still active in the local fire department, so I was drawn to this book. Featuring local volunteer departments across the nation, and profiles of average citizens who go above and beyond the call of duty, this book is captivating. With stories of small town fires and large-scale forest fires, and the brave men and women who stepped up to fight them, Local Heroes is a refreshing glimpse into the world of volunteer firefighting – a field which is so often overlooked with the glamor of the big city firefighters – and the brave individuals who work a full-time job each day and gladly step up to protect their cities around the clock.
