About the book

From codyfirebook.com: Created in 1902 with a donation from William F. “Buffalo Bill Cody,” the Cody Volunteer Fire Department began with a hose cart that men—and sometimes horses—pulled to a fire. Today, 60 dedicated volunteers and state-of-the-art fire engines are ready to respond to emergency calls covering a 3,200 square mile. Take a journey into the incredible history of Cody’s Volunteer Fire Departments and honor those who have given their time, dedication, and grit to keeping the citizens of Park County, Wyoming, safe.

All proceeds from the sale of the book go to Park County Fire District #2, in Park County, Wyoming.
