Fire Prevention In Television
J. J. Higgins, Chief of Schenectady, N. Y., Fire Department recently gave a fire prevention talk over television radio. In his talk he pointed out that a prevention campaign is carried on the year around in Schenectady, and reaches its peak during the Fire Prevention Week in the fall. The per capita fire loss in Schenectady was the lowest since 1920, at one dollar and six cents. This gave Schenectady twenty-sixth place in the National Fire Waste Contest, and first place in the State of New York. In addition to the talk, awards were made to children for fire prevention posters.
