Leadership

Today, we celebrate the first appearance of the National Fireman’s Journal.  Bobby Halton, editor-in-chief of its descendent, Fire Engineering, offers his thoughts on this anniversary. Fire department funding/staffing issues, building construction concerns, home fire hazards, and much more—they’re all here in the first issue, November 17, 1877.
