The following pages are a compilation of photography taken during the 2010 Firefighter Academy Louisville, Colorado. The images were captured over the course of 3 months while I followed the recruits through all steps of their training. I'm sincerely grateful for their patience in working with me and to the fire departments of Louisville and Lafayette Colorado for granting me access. I dedicate this book to these firefighters as well as all firefighters in the USA. Also, as a tribute to those who have paid the ultimate price while performing their duties to their community, I will be donating a portion of each book sale to the Colorado Fallen Firefighters Foundation (www.coff.us).
