"Doing it the right way, just like my dad." For the son of a decorated firefighter, this was the main focus in life as he followed a path his father had laid before him.
Take a ride with Ariston Hermano - a second generation New York City firefighter - first as a child upon a rig from Rescue 5 out of Brooklyn, then as a Probationary Firefighter at Randall's Island, and finally as a member of Engine 88/Ladder 38 in the Bronx.
Review:As a volunteer fireman, Five Alarm was hard to set down once I started reading it. I grew up with a family of firefighters including my grandfather, father and two brothers.
My experiences fighting a structure fire with my siblings is hard to put into words as we went about our duties to save life and property.
Five Alarm will send the message home as you read a story about a father and son and the brotherhood of the FDNY. Highly recommended whether you are a firefighter or not.
