In The Finest Tradition

The Rochester, New York Fire Department wanted a book about its history. Jill Wagner and Young Joo Park designed the first three sections that are richly illustrated with a wealth of photography. Many rare and never-before-published photos from a variety of public and private collections—give an up-close and personal look at the life and times of Rochester’s heroes. The book chronicles Rochester’s bravest public servants, from the early days of the volunteer bucket brigades to today’s professional, progressive, high-tech organization.
