    Is this a college our high school class?
    What kinds of references? How Many?

    A paper on LODD would be good.
    A paper on optimal staffing and response times.

    Take a look at the USFA site for some ideas as well.

    Default history of the fire service

    you should try writing a paper on the history of the fire service and how its evolved over the years. i have written 2 papers on fire related things such as grease fires and hazardous materials. 5-7 pages is easy when you know what to write about.

    Harve, he said it has to be 5-7 pages...not a book!!!
    A Fire Chief has ONLY 1 JOB and that's to take care of his fireman. EVERYTHING else falls under this.

    I recommend doing a paper on how cops and firemen generally have the same attitude toward people when it comes to laziness.

    How about a paper concerning how the fire service is drifting away from its core mission of fire fighting and how it all started.
