Fire Alarm Superintendents Meet
The Eastern Association of Superintendents of Fire and Police Telegraph held a two day meeting in Springfield, Mass., on March 11 and 12. President George H. Bowen, Superintendent of the Boston Automatic Fire Alarm Company, directed the sessions which were held in the Hotel Bridgeway.
The association went on record as favoring purple lights for fire alarm boxes in place of the present red lights which in some places are confused with traffic stop signals.
The speakers were William J. Mahan, President of the Eastern Section of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors; J. A. Horn, of Steel Tubes, Inc., who read a paper on “Steel Tubes for Electric Conduits”; Roscoe Kent, of the DeForest Radio Company, who spoke on “Radio in Police Signal Work”; Maurice A. Lynch, of the Kohler Company, who read a paper on “Kohler Electric Plants As Applied to Fire Department Emergency Service for Flood Lighting and for Emergency Lighting of Fire Alarm Headquarters”; and F. A. Raymond, of the Gamewell Company, who gave a demonstration of the new three-fold Gamewell fire alarm boxes.
The next meeting of the association will be held on June 10 and 11 in Portland, Me. The secretary is Timothy O’Hearn, Municipal Electrician, of Cambridge, Mass.
