Muskegon Department Stages Show
During the last Fire Prevention Week, the fire department of Muskegon, Mich., sponsored hose efficiency contests, in which each company in turn had to hook a line to the hydrant, lay 300 feet of hose, put on nozzle and turn on water. The company making the best time received a silver trophy at a dinner held for the department. The winner was Company No. 6 and the time was 19 1/2 seconds. Fire demonstrations were also given during the week.
