Description

From the text ... 'It is my hope that the Ten Standard Firefighting Orders will be used as they were intended and not become just a list of items to be memorized by our firefighters. I am no saint. In my early years, I tended to rush through the orders so I could aggressively engage. However, age and experience change us all. The Ten Standard Firefighting Orders are the basic building blocks of our fire culture. I hope every firefighter will commit them to heart, mind, and soul. Be safe out there!'
