About the Author:

I grew up in Greenwich Village in lower Manhattan. I went to public schools and graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 1960. I never had a desire to become a fireman, but a friend of mine talked me into it. It didn?t take me long to get to love the job. It was interesting, fulfilling and exciting. The closeness and comradery of the men was obvious from the start. Friendships have lasted throughout the years. It is one of the few jobs where you want the men working with you to know as much about the job as you do. Your life may depend upon it. It is not just a job, it is a brotherhood. Getting on the job was probably the smartest thing I had ever done in my life.
