About 'Into the Fire'
Academy Award®-winning documentary filmmaker Bill Couturié goes beyond the firefighter hero image and into the hearts and minds of the self-proclaimed "ordinary" men and women who perform extraordinary acts to keep us safe. Through intimate interviews with firefighters from big-city engine companies to small-town volunteer fire departments, the film addresses why firefighters risk their lives to save others - in a time when budget cuts and greater demands are making their jobs more challenging than ever.

Continuing its efforts to support the fire service, Fireman's Fund created the concept for the film and produced "Into the Fire" to raise the nation's consciousness about the many challenges firefighters face everyday.

Fireman's Fund® will donate funds from "Into the Fire" to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to upgrade or purchase needed equipment for fire departments across the country.

Musicians, including Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Dire Straits and other leading artists, have demonstrated support for this film by giving permission to use their music on the documentary soundtrack.

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
