Albany, Ga., Sets New Record

Issue 2 and Volume 93.

Albany, Ga., Sets New Record Fire losses in Albany. Ga., were the lowest in the history of the city last year with a per capita loss of slightly less than ten cents. The fire department of that city responded to 193 alarms, ninety-nine fires occurred in buildings with the total loss of $1,967. No person was killed or injured in any fire, completing twenty-nine years of such an honorable record. The low loss was partially due to the intensive fire prevention campaign that was carried on under Chief Brosnan. Wood shingle roofs were practically eliminated. Chimneys and flues were made safe. Constant inspection by uniformed firemen aided in eliminating heating hazards, the handling of volatile liquids, and hazards in the manufacturing industries.
