On a side note, Stephen Walsh captures more than Boston fires. The time he doesn’t spend roaming the suburbs for working fires he devotes to being President of the International Fire Photographers Association. Chances are there is someone in your department, or buffing your calls, who is good with a camera and composition. Let them know about the IAFP.

Bill... your article is definitely something that should be brought up in every firehouse, whether it be in a formal class setting or an informal firehouse kitchen table discussion. I was my Department's liaison to and a member of the City's Code Enforcement Impact Team. Part of what we did was marking abandoned properties with…

When moving up through the chain of command, one better learn the politics of the department and community without playing politics.
