New York Two-Platoon Test
The New York City Board of Aldermen last week adopted a resolution recommending to Fire Commissioner Adamson that a test be given the two-platoon system in the fire department. An ordinance for the immediate extension of the system to the whole department nevertheless was filed. The board of aldermen has simply asked that an experiment be conducted by the commissioner for a period of six months in some fire division under a deputy chief. At the conclusion of the test the commissioner will make a report.
