"Local Yokels" is a novel, I wrote trying to capture the close brotherhood that exists in the fire service. All characters are based off real volunteer firefighters from your community.
Overview: "The close brotherhood of the fire service is shown when Bootknife and
the Local Yokels of Uville face the most challenging week of their
lives. A week long stretch of structure fires has turned this into the
busiest consecutive fire period in the department's history. Bootknife
and his fellow firefighters will use all of their skills to battle these
blazes, saving lives and protecting their neighbors' properties.
Although rushing into danger becomes second nature to these "brothers in
battle," a partial collapse within one house fire will leave three of
them struggling to survive."
