Real-World Validation for This Book
Reviewed in the United States on December 14, 2015
I have used this book in my university course for 7 years. It is a big hit for traditional students wanting to become firefighters and non-traditional students who are on the job, but back in college to advance their education. I require my students to go on a ride-along and write a paper on their experiences. At the end of class, students provide critique of the class and comments on the course regarding their greatest insights. A student once wrote:
“ I also really enjoyed the ride-along experience. As I sat in the firehouse waiting for a call, I felt like it was literally a scene out of Kirschmann’s book, I love a firefighter. It really pulled everything together for me, getting to experience a day with the paramedic/firefighters, especially since I had no prior experience in the field.”
I regularly receive good comments about this book and her other one: I love a cop.
