Fire Alarm Office May Be Abolished

In his annual report, Chief John H. Espey of Elmira, N. Y, has recommended that the office of Superintendent of Fire Alarm Telegraph, formerly held by the late Will Y. Ellett be abolished, that there be a complete re-arrangement and re-numbering of the fire alarm boxes, and that seven men be added to the fire department.

Chief Espey urged that the men and officers be given substantial increases in salary commensurate with the positions held, and that another inhalator be purchased. The department had ten calls last year to resuscitate gas and drowning victims, and on four occasions, the persons were completely revived.
