The more things change, the more they remain the same. I served as the negotiator for the Santa Clara, CA City Fire Dept. IAFF local in their 1965 & 1966 wage negotiations. At that time, firefighting was categorized as one of the two most dangerous careers, the other being coal mining.

Very informative. I can see the families of firefighters being under a lot of stress as well.
