Fanning the Flames
by Dave Fanning

Dave Fanning had a 35 year career as a fire fighter in Liverpool, England and went on to develop a successful fire safety consultancy serving businesses acorss the UK.

Starting as a young cadet at a time when fire fighting equipment had changed little from that of the Victorian era, Dave rose to his own station command in Toxteth following the first ever street riots in Britain and to develop the Fire Training Centre offering training to companies through the Fire Service.

Dave stories are funny, heart-breaking, and full of valuable lessons for anyone leading people.

Above all, this is a great read: a book that reveals the character of the man. It is an adventure from page to page, and marked by characteristic dry Liverpool humour.
