Fire Equipment Manufacturers Reorganized
The Fire Equipment Manufacturers Institute, which is composed of a large number of the leading manufacturers of fire fighting appliances in this country, has been reorganized with Charles Meigs as Commissioner.
The new offices of the institute are located at 17 East 49th street, New York, N. Y.
Mr. Meigs has had wide experience in the fire apparatus field, having served as manager of the old Kanawha Chemical Fire Engine Company of Charleston, W. Va., following which he was with the James Boyd & Brother, Inc., at Philadelphia, one of the former big manufacturers in the fire department field. Later he was president of the Foamite Firefoam Company which was later on consolidated with the O. J. Childs Company of Utica, forming the present Foamite-Childs Corporation.
It was upon this consolidation that Mr. Meigs severed his connection with the Foamite Firefoam Company. He brings to the institute a wide experience in the field of fire fighting apparatus and equipment and much constructive work may be expected under his administration.
The institute will hold its next meeting at West Baden, Ind., on September 27.
