A necessity for friends & family of FireFighters 8 Nov 2005
By Jennifer Spear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Even though I completed this book I will keep it on my nightstand regardless. After reading "I Love a Fire Fighter", I feel so much better about how to relate to my Fire Fighter husband. I really feel prepared to handle his highs and lows as well as the dangers he faces every day. This book is such an invaluable tool, and I really loved the individual stories by real-life fire fighters and their families. My husband also read the book and found it highly enjoyable and realistic.

Real life advice in an easy to read format 13 Oct 2008
By J. A. Ruwe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been a firefighter's wife for 15 years. It wasn't until after our department suffered a tragic loss that I found myself struggling with what never used to bother me. I purchased this book with the intention of "previewing" it so that I could recommend it to the rookies' spouses. I am so glad that I did! It is well written and in every day language that ensures you can relate to the situations that are covered. Anyone with a firefighter in their family should read this book.

Great Book Every Fire Fighter and Family Should Own! 18 May 2007
By Lindsey Clendenny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My husband was a volunteer fire fighter when we met. I had a hard time dealing with constant fire and EMS alarms and the fact that he would put himself in a potentially dangerous situation. Some of the guys on his department recommended this book to him for me so I bought it. I absolutly loved it. I even joined my hometown volunteer department after I had read it to get a better understanding of what he does. I fell in love with fire fighting just as he did. We've been together a couple years now and were married a few months ago. We both belong to my department now and he has just been elected training officer. If it weren't for this book I may have given up on something really great in my life. It touches on all parts of fire fighting no matter if you are a female or male fire fighter. This book is a must have for all fire fighters and their families.

The fire service 9 Sep 2008
By Z. Linn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had my wife read this book. I thought it would shed some light on the life of a firefighter and really help her see things through my eyes. She did read it, but I felt like it really brings out all of the negatives in the fire service instead of all the GOOD things that come from being a firefighter. Sure, it touched on some good things, but I really feel like it had a lot of downfalls. I do agree that the life of a firefighter and how the family plays in can be stressful, at times the feeling of being alone for my wife, bringing the "baggage" if you will from calls home, etc. BUT, for me and my family the fire service has treated us very well. I really don't think this book gives the fire service a fair chance. My wife told me "this book isn't anything like our life". Sure the job is dangerous, can be extremely stressful, and at times I am away from home for a period of time, but it has been one of the best things in my life. Others may disagree with my stance on this book, but that was my take on it...

Good book for firefighter "support staff" 24 Oct 2008
By friend - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Firefighting is definitely a world all its own. I don't claim to know much about it as of yet, but I feel this book helped me get a head start.
