Fire Engineering Books & Videos is proud to present these new titles:



Who are you?
My name is Josh Neal, and I graduated from Oklahoma State University in 2016 with a degree in strategic communications. I worked for a fast-growing company in OKC for about nine months before moving to Tulsa and starting at PennWell. Shortly after, I was placed in the Books & Videos group with Fire Engineering and haven’t looked back. At 27, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the change our group has experienced over the years. I hope to continue to grow within FEBV and be a dynamic part of our continued success.

I was originally brought on to sale a new venture for the group, but shortly after that FEBV experienced a huge change and lost half our headcount.

From Emotional Wellness for First Responders by Jada Hudson

Every change in life requires adjusting to a new way of doing things, a new schedule, a new rhythm for daily life, a new set of expectations, or even a new way of relating to the people around you. Marcus Aurelius believed that “Loss is nothing else but change, and change is Nature’s delight.” Change is inevitable, and loss is all-too regular. Some changes are easy, and other changes will bring up unexpected emotions. This is a natural part of human processing.
