Fighting fires is one of the more dangerous occupations, not merely from the risk of death IN a fire, but from exposures that happen from FIGHTING a fire. This book covers prevention, food and protection while fighting a fire (it isn't about equipment), and addressing the health threats ON the fire, after the fire, and long term. Herbs, supplements, and avoidance of aggravating factors are addressed. This book has a LOT of help, for ANYONE who is exposed to harmful chemicals, regularly burns trash, needs to burn fields or who camps and sits around a fire. Written by Laura Wheeler.
