N. Y. Officers to Join Eastern Group
Through the efforts of Chief John Kenlon of New York City, director of the I. A. F. C., a campaign has been started to have the captains and lieutenants of the department join as members of the Eastern Association of Fire Chiefs, a section division of the mam organization. The circular soliciting membership reads in part as follows:
“It is proposed to make this an association for fire chiefs that will actually meet the needs, solve fire department problems and be of value and assistance to every chief. The policy and continuing program will aim at (a) Establishing standards of apparatus, equipment and practical fire methods; (b) More effective fire prevention work under the direction of the fire chief; (c) Adequate and reliable water supplies from the fire protection standpoint; (d) Actual demonstration of various modern fire fighting methods: (e) Prepare and promote the adoption of municipal and state laws for the betterment of fire departments, building laws and fire prevention work; (f) Establishing a death benefit fund.
“Membership in the E. A. of F. C. includes membership in the T. A. of F. C. and entitles members to participate in executing this program, copies of proceedings, fire manuals and other publications, copy of the monthly publication ‘Fire Chief,’ an association emblem and other benefits.”
The secretary of the association is Chief James Golden of Cohoes, N. Y.
