Greetings, and welcome back to our series on the books all firefighters should read. These literary endeavors are not only enjoyable and interesting, but they offer unique insights into what it actually means to be a firefighter.

In “B-Shifter: A Firefighter’s Memoir,” Nick Brunacini writes a raw and honest history of his personal relationship to the firefighting profession. He starts by documenting his father’s lengthy career and then transitions into what firefighting meant to him and his brother.

Looking for ways to improve your professional performance? Read “Step Up and Lead” by Frank Viscuso. The author is a deputy chief turned writer and motivational speaker, and the book is designed to help ambitious firefighters achieve their leadership goals.

Thanks for watching.
