Cincinnati to Test Indirect Application of Water
On June 27, 1955, at 8:00 a.m., the Fire Department of Cincinnati, Ohio (Chief Barney J. Houston) will stage a demonstration of the indirect application of water in fire fighting.
The fire department has secured permission from the city to use the building at 115-119 West Pearl Street, a double four-story brick, heavy mill constructed building, measuring approximately 170 feet long by 100 feet wide, for the tests.
The National Exploratory Committee for the application of water will be present and will compile the records.
Visitors from the fire service are invited to attend the demonstration.
