The Midwest Book Review
The most daunting thing about running into a burning building isn't the fire; it's everything else. "Notes from the Firehouse" is the memoir of veteran firefighter D. E. McCourt. "Notes" is a moving and exciting memoir about the things people don't always consider about firefighting. Rhett Fleitz - The Fire Critic
"It's captivating. I couldn't put it down."
"Doug McCourt's "Notes from the Firehouse" is a wonderful account of the author's years as a firefighter and member of a rescue squad. By the time I finished this terrific and tender account, I felt I knew him, his fellow firemen and the secret life of the firehouse. He is a hero who would never say so and a fine writer too. " Laura Shaine Cunningham, author of Sleeping Arrangements.
