Well done to Steve and the team
2 October 2014 | by haphazard72See all my reviews

This is a great documentary and well worth the watch if you're involved in emergency services or have an interest in this lifestyle and career.

I had no idea that Steve was a former FDNY firefighter and he brought a truly touching insight to the role interlaced with his own experiences on the job.

This was made even better because he had a true friendship that really shined through as he interacted with the FDNY members.

It wasn't a typical, sterile, "from an outsider" perspective. Steve had a real camaraderie with each person he interviewed.

Well done to Steve and the team....
