Prevention and Control of Farm Fires
A joint committee consisting of representatives of the National Fire Waste Council of Washington, D. C., and the Farm Fire Protection Committee of the National Fire Protection Association of Boston, working with a staff of experts, have issued a hook on “Prevention and Control of Farm Fires.” It contains a great deal of value to the village and town official and to the person who has extensive property in rural areas. A perusal of this book will give one a general picture of the protection of farm property.
There are chapters on Outline of Rural Fire Hazards, Defective Chimneys and Flues, Spontaneous Heating and Ignition of Farm Products, Lights and Lighting Systems Other Than Electricity, Power Farm Machinery, Incubators and Brooders, Location of Farm Buildings. Lightning Hazard and Lightning Protection, The Rural Fire Department, A Fire Safety Program for Rural Communities, The Function of Insurance, and a score of other chapters equally as interesting.
