This paper discusses, in-depth, the revolution that the American fire service is to incur. It mentions the general workings of the service and describes the modifications that need to be made due to changes in society, especially after the events of 9/11. Reformations like training, interaction with the community, external funding and expanded services are explored.

From the Paper:

"The two fire chiefs interviewed both foresee similar changes occurring in the fire service over the next decade. How the changes are actually implemented and managed differed slightly, but the vision was the same. As in the past, the prime focus of fire service departments is fire suppression. Over the last decade, emergency medical services have also been added to these departments as a primary concern. Other services are expected to be added in the future. One fire department chief is head of a fire department in a predominantly rural area. Faced with catastrophic wildfires in his area two years ago and not being adequately prepared for such a fire storm is one of the main areas in which this department will change in the near future. Already, they have added a Wildland Team to their fire services department."
