MY NAME IS BILL BENNETT AND I WAS ONCE A FIREFIGHTER. I HAVE BEEN TAKING PICTURES FOR PAST 20 YEARS AND I HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTING FIREFIGHTERS IN ACTION. I WAS HONORED WHEN I WAS ASKED TO PUT THIS BOOK TOGETHER FOR THE LONG BEACH FIRE DEPARTMENT. THIS BOOK CONTAINS THE PHOTOS I TOOK OVER THE YEARS AND WAS HAPPY TO BE PART OF THEIR JOURNEY. I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS BOOK AS MUCH AS I HAVE.
My name is Bill Bennett. I live on Long Island, New York. I was a firefighter in the 1970’s and 1990’s and my family goes along way back in the fire service. Through my photographs, I have been documenting the fire service and police departments in action for over 20-years. I hope that you enjoy my book as much as I have enjoyed taking these pictures. As I always say, “stay safe and watch the collapse zone!” Bill Bennett
