Product description


"An inspirational memoir from an extraordinary woman. The Heat of the Moment does for the fire service what Adam Kay’s This Is Going to Hurt did for the NHS. A humbling, jaw-dropping read which redefines what is possible in life" (Viv Groskop)

"Gripping, heart-stopping and profoundly reassuring. Thank heavens for such courage." (Sue Black, author of All That Remains)

"A vivid reminder of the horrors that firefighters face daily - and the debt of gratitude society owes them . . . This book challenges assumptions about who firefighters are, and about what women can do." (The Guardian)

"[One of] the wonder women of our emergency services" (Glamour)

"An immersive insight into a job which few of us could do, by a woman whose award-winning research into decision-making in the emergency services has transformed policy at a global level." (Stylist)

Book Description
