PHOTO: Retired Milwaukee firefighter Wayne Mutza knows a thing or two about firefighting and the equipment required for the job. Over the course of more than two dozen books, Mutza has shared that knowledge – as well as his passion for battle aircraft. He's written a memoir about firefighting, an illustrated history of firefighting in Milwaukee and a collection of stories from Milwaukee firefighters. His latest book is an almost encyclopedic look at fireboats, not just here, but across America. It makes a great companion to firefighter Jim Ley's recent history of Milwaukee firehouses.
