Chief Campaigns for New Reservoir—and Gets It!

Chief Campaigns for New Reservoir—and Gets It!

Normally, fire chiefs who are confronted with the need of increased water supplies are content merely to indite requests and recommendations to their municipal authorities and let it go at that.

It was different with Fire Chief Al Koltonski of Rutland, Vt. Al, as he is affectionately known to members of the International Association of Fire Chiefs and the New England Association of Fire Chiefs, couldn’t stand by and wait for hoped-for action to be taken on a longdiscussed 80-million-gallon reservoir to improve the quantity and quality of the City’s water. So he went out and campaigned actively for it, making fullest use of all printed media—newspapers, direct-by-mail; as well as radio; moving pictures; billboards and word-of-mouth promotion.

The sum involved was $397,000. But Al got it! Thanks JOHN O’HEARN.
