Allen & Unwin: Allen & Unwin, 2002. A behind-the-scenes look at the dangerous world of firefighting.<p> <i>At 12.32 a.m. on Friday 23 June 2000, the Childers auxiliary brigade received a 000 call saying that the Palace Backpacker Hostel at 72 Churchill Street was on fire . . . The first truck pulled up in front of the hostel five minutes after the fire call was sent. It was a dramatic scene. Occupants were streaming out of the burning building, and the Childers crew were facing a big fire with limited resources.</i><br><br><i>Firefighters</i> takes an unflinching look at what it means to do the highly dangerous job of saving lives from fire. It is drawn from interviews with over 50 firefighters-from the new recruit on the station house floor to the area director managing thousands of hectares of regional Queensland. Together, the firies recount their personal experiences, including the rigorous recruit training and selection program, the demanding rescue of motor accident victims, and the extinguishing of house and building fires-caused by arsonists, gas explosions or simply the careless dropping of a cigarette.<br><br>Often dealing with the traumatic losses of lives, homes and worldly possessions, these men and women face peril on a daily basis. This book tells of the professionalism, courage and dedication of the firefighters who place their lives on the line every time the alarm bell rings.<br><br>CHRISTMAS 2001 BUSHFIRE APPEAL FUND<br><br>Allen & Unwin will donate $1 to the Christmas 2001 Bushfire Appeal Fund for every copy of <i>Firefighters</i> sold.<p> Preface<br><br>1 The firies<br><br>2 Recruit training<br><br>3 On the job<br><br>4 The auxiliaries<br><br>5 The rural fire service<br><br>6 Firefighting<br><br>7 Rescue<br><br>8 A day in the Life of an urban firefighter<br><br>9 The regionals<br><br>10 Childers<br><br>11 Oops!<br><br>12 Courage under fire<br><br>Appendix 1: The Enemy<br><br>Appendix 2: QFRS Regions<br><br>Glossary<br><br>Notes and sources<br><br>Index<p><p>.
