In his working class, Irish-Catholic neighborhood, there were other jobs that offered a decent wage, but none had the sense of belonging that comes with being a fireman, or the purity of purpose that comes with saving lives.

Pops was on the scene of the notorious Cocoanut Grove fire in 1942- the authors father, Sonny served with distinction until an explosion blew him from a third-story window- and two of the authors brothers were sparks as children, amateur firefighters, whose career goals were thwarted by a court order integrating the Boston fire department and changing the rules for employment forever. One became a cop, the other a paramedic and rescue man with an elite squad sent to Ground Zero in the aftermath of the collapse of the World Trade Center.

Spanning sixty years of firefighting history in America, Rescue Men captures what its really like to be a fireman.
