This should be at the top of any professional development reading list. Make yourself a better fireman and take the time to read this book; you wont regret it.
My husband requested this for Father's Day. Chief G is a legend and he's so very wise. Any firefighter or fire family will benefit from his collected wisdom.I've never paid for gift wrapping before, but this was a special Father's Day gift for my fire chief husband.I have no idea what condition the book is in, but the wrapping is a disgrace. I will never pay $4 for gift wrap from again.
I saw this book, I believe on TSL, and had to purchase it for my son who is going thru training to be a firefighter, about 18 months away from testing. There is a wealth of wisdom, knowledge and humor in here for all to enjoy. So far we have been enjoying the book together. Thank you to all who had input into this great book. Lt. R. Kaiser
I highly recommend "Pass It On". I know many of the authors, but I didn't know all their stories. I found them to be educational and entertaining. I was especially moved by the piece written by Curt Varone, "Reflections on The Station Night Club Fire". Every Fire Inspector in the world should read that account. Another favorite was "Risk vs. Reward: 7 World Trade Center" by Ronald R. Spadafora. This first hand account of what lead up to the collapse of WTC 7 sets the record straight. Rounding out my "Top 3" is "Fire Fire - Important Lesson" by Dr. Burton A Clark. I heard this story first hand and it reinforces the need for training and more training, and much more training. Again, great job...great book.
I picked up my copy at FDIC in Indy this year where I had the opportunity to have some of the contributors in this book autograph my copy. I'm fortunate that I have had the good fortune to work with many of the contributors in this edition. This book is a wonderful way for them to pass along their collaborative knowledge, wisdom and insight in one volume. It's an easy read with each contributor having their own section. You don't have to read it in order. You can choose any contributor and go right to their chapter. Even though I know some of the writers, I still learned something new about each of them I didn't know from Billy's introduction of each author. The info they want us to know and they are willing to pass along is interesting and gives you a fresh perspective on many topics related to firefighting, fire service politics, teamwork, leadership, firefighting methods and common fire service problems. Well worth your time and money! Great job Billy! Will we see a volume 2 in the future perhaps?
D/C Billy Goldfeder is unquestionably the most vocal chief in today's fire service with his daily updates and ponderings in "The Secret List" e-newsletter. Goldfeder writes like he speaks--straightforward and not afraid to deliver a punch when deserved. With "Pass it On" Billy tapped his vast network of emergency service friends and compiled a collection of wisdom and warnings for potential fire/EMS personnel, seasoned responders and anyone else that is fascinated by lights and sirens and the dedicated men and women who often put their lives on the line. Goldfeder's introduction to each person and chapter is 'pure Billy.' Great reading, but valuable lessons too.
Chief Billy G has created an asset for the fire service by compiling the knowledge of so many veterans, including his own, into a handbook that every firefighter should read. If the content in this book doesn't keep you motivated and excited about the blessing we have to serve others, then it's probably time to get out of the business. The money goes towards a great cause so buy your copy today!
This book is a collection of advice and observations from some of the sharpest minds and most well-respected leaders in the fire service. Once I started reading it I found it hard to put down. I just could not get enough of the wisdom this book compiles. Well done Chief Goldfeder and the more than 100 co-contributors. Kudos to Fire Engineering Books & Videos as well.
