Item description for To Ride A Red Engine by Dave Wilson...
This book tells you what it is like to do just that. The author, who served for twenty-seven years at busy inner-London fire stations, gives a fascinating account of his life as a London Fireman. From attending the biggest fire in post-war London to achieving the Chief Officer's Commendation for bravery, this book takes you through the highs of saving lives to the lows of multiple child deaths. Skilfully blending drama with farce, it will have you chuckling out loud. Described in American reviews as, 'the best first-person account of firefighting ever!' Warning: Not recommended for long train or aeroplane journeys, where continuous chuckling out loud might be considered anti-social behaviour!
