Baltimore Auxiliaries Trained in Six Stations
Baltimore, Md., Auxiliary firemen are now being trained at six stations in the city. The first class is expected to go into active fire service shortly. Due to their large number, (2500 being enrolled) it will be necessary to assign the auxiliaries to fire duty for limited periods each week. They will respond on regular apparatus during their duty periods.
Auxiliaries also will take over operation of the auxiliary fire pumpers which will be allotted the city by federal authorities. Several new pieces of regular fire apparatus are being assigned to companies, to replace oid apparatus.
