The FIRE ENGINEER, in line with its policy of rendering the best possible services at all times to its readers, has obtained the co-operation of Luke Flanagan, Battalion Chief of the New York City Fire Department, in conducting a technical Department. This Department will be unusual in many ways, for Mr. Flanagan will undertake to answer all of the questions that may be asked. But in place of only going into the direct answer, he will show how the information can be applied.
Mr. Flanagan is one of the deep students in the Fire Fighting profession. He is in charge of one of the most important districts in New York City, and his work lias been of very high standard.
Mr. Flanagan is the author of “Science in Fire Fighting,” which has been proclaimed as one of the great contributions to the literature on Fire Fighting.
The FIRE ENGINEER feels that it has indeed performed a real service to its readers and to the profession at large, by obtaining Mr. Flanagan’s cooperation.
