One of the world's most senior female firefighters shares stories from her extraordinary life to explore how we respond in life-or-death situations.

About the Author

Dr Sabrina Cohen-Hatton has been a firefighter since she was eighteen years old. She is now a Chief Fire Officer and one of the most senior female firefighters in the UK.

After leaving home at fifteen and school at sixteen, she joined the fire service in Wales. While climbing the ranks, she studied at the Open University and then at Cardiff University, eventually completing a PhD in Psychology. Her subsequent research into incident command in the emergency services has not only won awards but has also influenced policy at a global level. Sabrina was recently conferred as an Honorary Fellow at Cardiff University.

She lives with her husband and daughter in London.

Reviews

An inspirational memoir from an extraordinary woman. The Heat of the Moment does for the fire service what Adam Kay’s This Is Going to Hurt did for the NHS. A humbling, jaw-dropping read which redefines what is possible in life
*Viv Groskop*

Gripping, heart-stopping and profoundly reassuring. Thank heavens for such courage.
*Sue Black, author of All That Remains*

A vivid reminder of the horrors that firefighters face daily - and the debt of gratitude society owes them . . . This book challenges assumptions about who firefighters are, and about what women can do.
*The Guardian*

[One of] the wonder women of our emergency services
*Glamour*

An immersive insight into a job which few of us could do, by a woman whose award-winning research into decision-making in the emergency services has transformed policy at a global level.
*Stylist*
