Behind My Badge is a spellbinding story of courage, commitment, and unwavering faith. Captain Mike Rossman takes us behind the scenes of the City of Miami Fire Department over a period of 30 years of service. As his hard-won promotions take him from rookie to Battalion Captain, he tells us what it's really like to be a firefighter or paramedic on a Rescue crew - from learning how to lay a hose or hook a ladder to departmental policies like "skipping." Whether he and his men are responding to a multi-alarm fire, rushing to a riot scene, saving the life of a cardiac arrest patient, delivering a child, or treating a horse, they have to count first on each other. Captain Rossman's stories are honest compassionate, often inspirational, and interlaved with the wry humor born of facing danger on a daily basis.
