The A-Team Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
"What do we know about fire fighting?, What do we know?"

The purpose of this page is to not only simplify information found elsewhere on the site but to also address issues regarding the show that I've not talked about already and hopefully bring it all together in an easy sub-headed form which may be of use to those of you that just want some quick information. The FAQ itself is based on the original one created by Nicole Pellegrini, from questions posed by readers of On The Jazz, that I've stripped down and brought upto date in my own words.
