Hello! I am a fire buff and one-time volunteer in the 1980s. This Fire Journal blog is an attempt to share what was learned from my time in the fire service and to thank my friends - volunteer and career alike - for their patience and support. There were many highs and many lows. It is an honor to know such brave, tough men and women.
This project took shape following visits to the historic Clerkenwell, Lambeth and Euston fire stations in August 2001. Your editor thanks the following members of the London Fire Brigade for their their hospitality: Robin Whittington, Terry Chaplin, Dave Seaman, Alex Spreadbury, Steve Bowes and John Deans.
