5.0 out of 5 stars He's not a MUTT ! 5 Aug. 2006
By E. Sorensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Finally, a "White Hat" who gets it...they are a rare breed. Chief Lasky's book illustrates why being a firefighter is the best career in the world. He is forward thinking, but established in a foundation of old school values which gives him direction. All this is found in his book. This is an easy read, but a very complex subject. If you are on the 'Job', this is a must read - over and over again. Fall in love with the job all over - and be proud of what you do!
5.0 out of 5 stars This book reminds you to be proud of your profession 9 Nov. 2015
By J.T. Marsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Rick Lasky has written a book that everyone involved in the fire service should read. Pride and Ownership is about getting back to the basics of firefighting and serving your community. Chief Lasky has done things in his department that could benefit any department in the country. He offers up valuable advice on how to improve recruitment and retention, as well as community involvement and boosting a department's public image. It offers up valuable information for the rookies, the senior firefighters, and on up into the supervisor level. I just wish someone had handed me this book when I had first joined the fire service.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds Expectations 15 Feb. 2009
By J. Blunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After hearing a podcast on this book on [...] I decided that I should pick up a copy and see what the hub-bub was all about. This book exceeded most of my expectations. Chief Lasky took it upon himself to address many of the issues that are now plaguing the fire service. He writes on the lost traditions, what it means to be a firefighter, a Company Officer and even a Chief Officer. He also tells the reader about some of the programs his fire department does to increase interaction with the public and how it improves the relationship between the fire department and the public/elected officials.

This book should be a mandatory read for every firefighter on the job BEFORE they get promoted to a Company Officer position. The only reason I do not give it five stars is because Lasky lives to be a little repetitive and some grammatical errors. However, this book has brought me back into focus on why I am a firefighter and what I need to remember as I continue along my career in the fire service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Work 24 Nov. 2008
By G. DEJONG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is outstanding work. If you are looking to transform your department into one that is full of pride and ownership, look no further. If you ever have a chance to see Rick Lasky speak, I highly reccomend it. He is an incredible speaker as well as author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read 7 Feb. 2014
By Ray Griffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you are embarking on a career in the fire service you must read this book, if you are getting promoted to company officer - you must read this book, if you are a fire chief - you must read this book. Read it and when you feel yourself struggling to with the issue of moral, read it again. Reading this book (& if given the opportunity to hear Chief Lasky lecture - Do it) will rekindle the fire that sparked your career to begin with. One of my favorite books I have ever read.
