Abstract

Firefighting has been a paid profession for less than half a century. Before that, volunteer departments handled the fire emergencies and in some locations still do today. The fire service, whose history goes back to the 1600s, developed and employed techniques that evolved into advanced training and technology now considered "cutting edge." As technology evolves, traditions of the fire service remain stable and resistant to change.
