N. H. Plans for Emergencies

Issue 5 and Volume 94.

N. H. Plans for Emergencies Detailed plans are being made in New Hampshire to meet the dangers from fire which have increased as a result of sabotage. A special demonstration is to be held in Concord sometime in October. It will consist of fighting an imaginary fire at the State House in Concord with the only source of water supply being the Merrimack river. Companies from many towns will participate. Steps have already been taken to list all available apparatus in the state for a coordinated front against any possible future emergency. Portable fire pumps are being extensively tested and it has been predicted that this type of pump will be the answer to fire problems of rural and semi-rural communities where good highways are often absent.
