Fire Marshal’s Staff and Firemen Meet Jointly The entire staff of State Fire Marshal John G. Gamber, both office assistants and field deputies held their annual roundup in Dixon, January 9 to 11, in connection with the convention of the Illinois Firemen’s Association on those dates. Mr. Gamber arranged a dinner for his men on the evening of Tuesday, January 9, which was devoted to a round table discussion of important problems connected with the work of the fire marshal. Thereafter the state men participated in the convention of the firemen. Mr Gamber tried out the plan of having his men meet in connection with the state firemen’s association last year at Rockford, feeling that it would bring his department and the firemen in more intimate cooperation. Last year’s meeting was so successful that the same plan was followed this year.
