Frequently Asked Questions


I have written, or would like to write, a book of my own. Do you publish books from outside authors?

Yes we do. Fire Protection Publications publishes many fire-service-related books and manuals independent of the IFSTA label. In order for us to consider publishing your work, it must not conflict or compete with any existing IFSTA or FPP publications.

How do I get an article or photo printed in Speaking of Fire?

Submit your article or photo to our marketing staff, or mail your entries to c/o Speaking of Fire at our headquarters address.

Can I submit photos to Fire Protection Publications?

Yes, most should deal with specific subject matter (photos of particular equipment, step-by-step techniques, etc.). We do also have occasional use for good photographs that would be suitable for covers for our catalogs, newsletters, advertising pieces, and our manuals. Refer to our Photography Guidelines.

Are signed releases required?

Yes, all photographs submitted must be accompanied by a signed photo/model release. Note that we do not return unused photographs.
