SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KFSM) — A Springdale firefighter is using his writing skills to educate children on what it takes to become a firefighter.

David Carr recently published his first children's book and is hoping to get at least one in each library in Northwest Arkansas.

"Learn how working hard and never giving up leads Dave to achieve his dream of becoming a fireman," the description reads.
