‘A hilarious insight into the everyday heroics of firefighter who put their lives on the line for us all’
Russell Brand


Leigh Hosy-Pickett has seen it all in his twenty-five years as a firefighter. He’s battled infernos and pulled people from the wreckage of twisted metal but the closest he ever came to death was at the hands of a confused hen do. Now he’s here to tell us the funniest, most eye-opening and moving stories from a life lived amongst the smoke.

From blazes involving sex toys, to navigating cannabis farm security measures, this brilliantly warm and entertaining book by a third-generation firefighter is a celebration of the everyday heroism of our Fire Service. But it is also a clear-eyed and honest record of the many sacrifices made in the line of duty and the consequences of that heroism.
