Featuring more than 430 of the best images selected from the thousands of photos of fire and rescue scenes taken by the author in 2007, this book documents the dedication and heroism of local firefighters and emergency medical personnel who on a daily basis put themselves at risk to protect the lives and property of others.

The author's hope is that the photos in this book can be used by fire and EMS professionals for training purposes and that members of the general public will gain a better understanding and appreciation for what emergency responders do to keep everyone safe. The book should also serve as a visual record of local historical events that might otherwise be forgotten over time.

Due to the graphic nature of some of the photos, this book is not meant for young readers.

The majority of incidents appearing in this book took place in Mercer County, New Jersey. The remaining incidents occurred in other parts of New Jersey, as well as Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
