Salvage Corps Utilizes First Aid Kit
Four members of a Kansas City, Mo., fire company are lucky that all squad wagons of the Underwriter Fire Patrol in that city carry first-aid kits.
The four firemen entered a house to extinguish a small blaze when a bottle of gasoline near the fire exploded and showered the men with the flaming fluid. They were painfully and severely burned. Men from the patrol took charge and used their kit for the first time. The equipment had only been placed on the salvage trucks earlier in the week by order of the National Bond of Fire Underwriters. The injured men were given first aid and then removed to a hospital for additional treatment.
