An account of the activities of the Denver, Col., Fire Department is contained in the annual report made by Chief John F. Healy. The per capita loss was 71 cents.
Eighty-eight firemen suffered injuries with a total of 3,259 days loss of time. Five firemen died, two being killed in a collision of apparatus.
A credit union was organized among the department members to encourage thrift and to make it possible to get loans during periods of need.
An ordinance was passed governing the transportation and handling of flammable liquids, and the routing of such trucks within the city. Chief Healy believes that is one of the most important fire prevention ordinances passed in recent years.
