Author Bob Gish spent thirty years as an Atlanta Firefighter and loved the rigs of the fire service. As his time on the job came closer to completion, the thoughts of this book formulated.
After retiring in 2008, Gish researched over 500 groups of apparatus purchased by the Atlanta Fire Department between 1851 & 2015. Out of the Ashes tells the story, through historical text, of the founding of Atlanta as a railroad town in 1837, the development of a fledgling fire brigade in 1848 up to the modern fire department of today and its fire apparatus that has protected the citizens and visitors of Atlanta. This book highlights a sample of those rigs with details and photographs.
This would be the perfect addition to any fire buff’s library. Order your copy today!
