KIRKUS REVIEW

For junior ""buffs"" (fire-followers) this book about firemen and their work tells all- in a sprightly style which utilizes the he-man fire-fighter's vocabulary. How each fireman does his job, how the big fires are handled, equipment, a fireman's day, clothing, fire-boats, volunteer firemen, forest fire-fighters, are discussed in brief but meaty paragraphs. Plenty of bright illustrations by Jeanne Bendick to simplify descriptions of complicated gear and to give the young fire fancier a knowing air when items like ""Siamese connection""; ""deck pipe"" and ""smoke ejector"" are mentioned.
