In everyone's career, things are said or done that make the "light bulb turn on". This article was one of the things that I read early in my career that had a tremendous impact on me. Immediately after reading it, I knew I had to be a member of the 30% Club, that a 30 percenter was the type of fireman I wanted to be. Though I 've had this article tucked away for a long time, now seems like a great time to talk about some good 'ol hard-nosed firefighting... enjoy!
