Two from firefighter and author Gary R. Ryman

Here's a blog written by Gary R. Ryman, a firefighter from Northeastern Pennsylvania.

I'm a father, husband, engineer, freelance writer, history student, and fire fighter, and the author of Fire Men: Stories From Three Generations of a Firefighting Family.

If you follow that link, you will go to this site:
This site is primarily about the book; however, it duplicates some (but not all) of the posts from the Keep 200 Feet Back site. This site also includes additional background information:
Having served over thirty years in fire departments across three states, Gary R. Ryman brings a unique perspective to the firefighting experience. The son and father of firefighters, Ryman ignites the fire, smoke, blood and fear spanning three generations of the "family business." He recounts his early days in upstate New York learning from his father, the department fire chief. He describes the blazes he battled with a career and volunteer crew in the crowded suburbs of Washington, D.C. He examines the mentoring relationship established with his son as they respond to the calls of a volunteer department in rural Pennsylvania. Overall, Ryman shares both the personal and professional turning points that define a firefighting career.
