...and our brave firemen are there whenever we call

If you live in the world of Fahrenheit 451 and have even a single book in your house, the last knock you want on your door is that of The Firemen.
Books are illegal.
They must be burned.
It's for your own protection.
451 degrees Fahrenheit --
the temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns!
