The firehouse represents a significant portion of society that provides protection from fires and other emergencies. It is an institution.

This is where the heroes are.

Behind the big red doors is a territory where each firefighter has their own cause and individual ideas. But they deal as a collective group with endless challenges, from how to repair a toilet, work a computer, to how did so and so make that promotion?

They are people like us.

This is a satirical story about the "other shift" we always talk about and the shift we are glad we are not a part of. If you are on the job, somehow you know one or two of these firefighters. The stories are an accumulation of observations as seen by the author during a career in a firehouse. The challenges of the day eventually come together, as the firefighters share their feelings in the firehouse kitchen.

Oh, to be the fly on the wall.
