Cover Text'[One of] the wonder women of our emergency services' Glamour
'An inspirational woman' Good Housekeeping
Dr Sabrina Cohen-Hatton has been a firefighter for eighteen years. She decides which of her colleagues rush into a burning building and how they confront the blaze. She makes the call to evacuate if she believes the options have been exhausted or that the situation has escalated beyond hope. She has managed emergencies that have shocked and moved us all, and made decisions that seem impossible.
Taking us to the very heart of firefighting, she reveals the skills that are essential to surviving - and even thriving - in such a fast-paced and emotionally-charged environment. And she immerses us in this extraordinary world; from scenes of devastation and crisis, through triumphs of bravery, to the quieter moments when she questions herself and the decisions made in the most unforgiving circumstances. Ultimately, we are asked to step into her boots. In the face of urgency and uncertainty, would you respond analytically or trust your instincts? How would you decide who lives and who dies?
Sabrina's award-winning research into decision-making in the emergency services has transformed policy at a global level. This is her astonishing account of a profession defined by the most difficult decisions imaginable. Honest, eloquent and empowering, here is the truth about how we respond in our most extreme moments.
