“The Red Notebook”: a riveting story about the colorful personalities of firefighters and their activities. “The Red Notebook” is the creation of published author, Thomas J. Parsons, a retired firefighter who has contributed to various national fire service and community-type publications.

“Over the years, Captain Snut had quietly kept some notes in an old red notebook, kind of a record of fire calls over the years as well as some of the foolishness that occurs daily in the firehouse. He was going to put all of the info into a book he was calling ‘firehouse follies.’ But of late, the captain got discouraged when he heard that Chief Burns has implied to anyone who will listen that he will produce a book called ‘a station’s activity.’ It will probably be a bunch of ‘short stories,’ Captain Snut thinks laughing to himself thinking of the vertically challenged assistant chief.

Later, Captain Snut figures that no one will be interested in his stories. His eventual frustration boils over and he tosses the notebook into the trashcan in the office. But will the efforts be recovered, or lost forever?”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Thomas J. Parsons’s new book is an interesting look at a neighborhood firehouse that seems to be a place that is ignored unless an emergency situation takes place—the job of the firefighters and their lives contained inside their workplace are unraveled to the readers through this well-crafted book.

The characters in this book are presented with a realistic approach, so that readers will see them as human beings just like everyone else, even if their job can appear as heroic and mystical.
