Unit I Project
Historical Timeline of the Fire Service
It is important to understand where the fire service came from in order to help shape its future. Tradition is steep within the fire service, so understanding the challenges along the way helps you appreciate the need to honor tradition, yet be willing to let go at times in order to improve this honored profession.
In this assignment, you are to develop a graphic timeline, using the Microsoft Word Shapes or SmartArt features, for the significant events in the history of the fire service, from the Roman Republic up to the present. Also include your department or the department that protects your community if you are not currently in the fire service. Include such items as the development of apparatus, major events that shaped todayâ€™s fire service, and important figures that were prominent in helping the fire service develop. You need to use at least two different sources in developing this timeline. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
