About this audiobook

'Us firefighters do more than fight fires. We also assist those who have just gone through what's probably the worst experience of their lives.' The devastating 2019–2020 Black Summer bushfires threw the importance of our volunteer firefighters into sharp focus. But these brave men and women don't just step up to protect life and property in fires, they are also there to help in road accidents, plane crashes, natural disasters like cyclones and floods – and, yes, they even rescue pets that have got themselves into strife. This audiobook serves as a tribute to the thousands of volunteer firies across Australia who roll up their sleeves and selflessly put their lives on the line to assist their fellow human beings.
