Aftermath is a book by Bryan Ratushniak.

Bryan Ratushniak

"Who doesn't rush to the window when a fire truck rushes by? Bryan Ratushniak, has spent a thirty-two-year career working on the busiest fire trucks in Canada and has detailed his adventures in this witty memoir.

The book details the emotional damage inflicted by the horrors of the job and how the author came out the other side more or less in one piece. Ratushniak shares the ups and downs of balancing home and professional life while trying to hold onto his sanity.

Aftermath is filled with candid, humorous, tragic, and hopeful stories from behind the 'big red doors.'" (From Cormorant Books)

Aftermath is available in April 2020.

Ratushniak is a former firefighter and bodybuilder who now works as a screenwriter and producer. Aftermath is his first book.
