Synopsis: A memoir from a retired firefighter about firefighting, rescue calls and life around the firehouse.
It's not all about fire - that's lesson number one.
No, it's a collection of things: assisting an injured person at three o'clock in the morning, calming a child in a traumatic situation, saving the belongings of a family from the ravages of a fire, seeing people in every heartbreaking situation imaginable and trying to help them, while not losing yourself in the process.
And it's about the insanity found in the firehouse - to the author it's the Cracker Factory - and the politics and pettiness that try unsuccessfully to steal the joy from the job. This book is the blue-collared view of a career firefighter. The seventeen stories in Notes from the Firehouse take the reader on a journey with the everyday firefighter from his first days as a rookie, to his last fire that prematurely sends him into retirement.

Review: "Doug McCourt's "Notes from the Firehouse" is a wonderful account of the author's years as a firefighter and member of a rescue squad. By the time I finished this terrific and tender account, I felt I knew him, his fellow firemen and the secret life of the firehouse. He is a hero who would never say so and a fine writer too. " Laura Shaine Cunningham, author of Sleeping Arrangements.
