Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

The one thing about our profession is we learn something new or more about something important every day. As we watch our urban interface and our western wildlands erupt in epic wildfires the website give us access to a book which provides tremendous insight as to why this is happening and what we can expect in the future. The book “The Sleeping Giant Awakens” is available here and is my favorite fire service book of the year with amazing stories and lessons learned during the career of Forest Service icon Sonny Stiger. I recommend all serious firefighters get the book, you will find it fascinating I guarantee it! Let me know your thoughts about it and lets be careful out there. Happy Fourth of July Bobby

I have my theories on why this is taking place. This looks like a good read. I'm going to order it and read it on vacation in Cape May in a few weeks. Thanks for the overview.
