This publication makes a great holiday gift, department resource, or personal keepsake.

A Proud Tradition looks at the evolution of America’s volunteer fire service from its earliest beginnings, to changes in equipment and apparatus, to current issues facing today’s volunteers such as expanding scope and recruitment and retention. Sections also cover training, women in the fire service, and community involvement programs such as Fire Corps. The publication not only looks at where the fire service came from, but also where it stands today and where it is headed in the future.
