Sixteen years ago, Lane Carl was a high school art teacher looking for a career change when she was encouraged to pursue a career in firefighting. She is now in her third year as a firefighter serving Rock Community Fire Protection District. Firefighter Carl was then inspired to create the character, Indie, and write her story centered around firefighting and encouraging girls that they can be firefighters, too.

“Yeah, I Can Do That” is a beautifully illustrated book with a big heart behind it. A portion of each book sold benefits BackStoppers. We are grateful for this generous support and for Firefighter Lane Carl’s inspiring and motivational story. You can get your copy of “Yeah, I Can Do That” at

“I was lucky enough to transition careers into the fire service. This children’s book is a depiction of that.  I hope it sparks interest in not only little girls, but boys as well, in joining one of the best professions out there.  I couldn’t think of a better way to give back to a career that has given me so much already.  BackStoppers does so much for families that have lost too much.” – Firefighter Lane Carl
