I became aware of this book when it was brought to my attention as a station manager of a retained fire station. I frequently have people wanting to join and personally have to guide them through the recruitment process.
One of the lads brought this book along and I had a read of of to ascertain how accurate it is. I have to say it is pretty spot on.
I think it it well written and presented and I can confirm that the information is accurate. There are usually 'key stages' where potential recruits fall down, but I think the explanations in this book are very good and should be getting applicants in the 'mindset', especially around the dreaded PQAs!
I just wish everybody would read this book prior to coming to see me as it would make my job a lot easier!
