I gave this book 4 stars because it is the only one on its subject anywhere. Smith gives a good general history of the Patrol, and fire salvage in general, but many photos are of poor quality, and there are no shots of the Patrol's more recently-purchased trucks.
Smith also writes in an interesting manner.
Every sentence is its own paragraph.
As you can see, this can be a bit annoying.
Despite its shortcomings, the book makes an important contribution to local history, and to the story of firefighting.
