All Part of the Job

Firemen are more than fire fighters. According to Chief Frank W. Bennett, Durham, N. C., firemen must also be ready to rescue cats, help those who have not the keys to get back into their homes, help the community to hang flags on special occasions, and even respond for blood transfusions. However, the last type of service is optional and the department does not force its men to volunteer.

The fire stations are friendly places which have helped Durham earn the slogan, “the friendly city.”’
