Being a volunteer firefighter involves so much more than just fighting fires. Jason Borton is an emergency physician at Millard Fillmore hospitals and a volunteer with the Sweeney Hose company in North Tonawanda. He has written a book about his experiences titled "Memoirs of a Volunteer Firefighter". In it he share some of the behind the scenes stories the public rarely hears.

"Its not just about fighting fires, there's a lot more camraderie, there's brotherhood, there are other things we do together all the time so it gives you a great big picture of the whole volunteer firefighting service," explains Borton.

Dr. Borton hosted a book signing at the Sweeney Hose company on Sunday. His book is also available online at the following web address:
