The Hotel Bancroft in New York City has in all probability the most complete air raid equipment for hotels in the city.

The truck which was designed by Arthur L. Lee, Director of the hotel, has swivel wheels and may be readily moved to any part of the building. It is equipped with the following articles: a tank containing twenty-six gallons of water and six fire water buckets, twentyfive sand bags, stirrup pump with thirty feet of hose and sprinkler, fifty feet of garden hose and sprinkler, adaptor, spanner wrench, large chemical fire extinguisher, large soda fire extinguishes, two carbon tetrachloride extinguishers, wrecking bar, peen hammer, pipe wrench, hack saw and blades, hatchet, fire ax, long handled hoe, long handled fire hook, long handled shovel, large first aid kit, helmet, asbestos helmet with goggles, asbestos gloves, several pairs of cotton gloves, six blankets, fifteen foot adjustable fire hook, one red kerosene lamp, one white kerosene lamp, electric lamp flashlights, several pairs of goggles, two gas masks, chisels, fire pails, pails with loose sand, large pliers, screw driver, whistle and chain rope and hook.
