Burning Question: Can We Afford to Close Down Fire Stations?

When a community’s budget crunch hits, firemen and fire houses are among the first victims in a bad economy. But having less fire protection is not good for the unsuspecting public or for community safety.

Convenient Heroes presents a wakeup call of the ongoing struggle between firefighters who fight fires and save lives, versus politicians who don’t. As fire houses and their companies are closed and disbanded, their communities become unwitting victims to the ravages of fire, waiting for help from ever-increasing distances. The men and women who are proclaimed our heroes suddenly become expendable when city budgets fall.

Author K. Scott Bonovich was granted access to firehouses in three different departments, often living there with the firefighters and riding along to fires. He learned first hand why these brave people are heroes. He also learned that when it comes to public safety, fire and politics don’t mix!
