Fire Alarm Office for Jacksonville
Contracts have just been let by the city commission of Jacksonville, Fla., for the erection of a building for the fire, police and traffic signal bureau.
For several years the Commissioner of Public Safety and George P. Allen, Chief of the Signal Bureau, have been working for such a building which would, at the same time, satisfy the requirements of the National Board of Fire Underwriters.
The building will house all switchboards and necessary central office equipment, and it will be located in the center of the city in a most attractive park. There will be a basement under the one-story building. It has been stated that this is the first building of its kind in Florida.
