New York State Instructors Conference The Ninth Annual Fire Instructors Conference sponsored by the New York State Division of Safety will be held in Plattsburgh, May 20-24, 1957. The five day session will introduce new courses in Aircraft Crash Fire Fighting and Arson Detection and Investigation. Both of the courses will become part of the graduate training to be offered to firemen in the State. Plattsburgh was chosen as the site of the conference in order that the instructors could avail themselves of the facilities and staff of the 820th Air Base Group (SAC) which maintains its headquarters in that city. Qualified instructors of the Base Fire Department will present the training.
