Nothing is as instantly recognisable as a fire truck racing to fight a blaze, sirens blaring and lights flashing. The action photography in this book captures that excitement in all its forms. Shapiro explores the special techniques and equipment brought to bear on fires in cities and suburbs, rural out posts, wilderness areas, homes, industrial estates. He takes a close look at the hair-raising rescues and other 'non-firefighting' tasks that fire-fighters find themselves facing. From bold photography and detailed descriptions of fighting fires to close-up looks at the Fire House and its full array of equipment - trucks, ladders, pumpers, and tankers - this book conveys both the technical nitty-gritty and the fiery action of meeting and containing one of the most brutal and destructive forces on the face of the planet.
