The following is an account of twenty-five years of my life as a Toronto firefighter. The stories are written much like a diary. It's unedited, opinionated and raw just as it rolled out of my head on to the page. The punctuation is sporadic and the grammar in many places I'm sure, is just plain wrong. But the stories are true. Some are funny. Some are disturbing as hell, but all are the things I’ve lived through. By the grace of God some just barely. Nothing is free in this world. The price is sometimes not apparent, but we all pay one way or the other. Being a firefighter, I've paid in both physical and mental pain. And I would do it all over again.
