School Planned for North Carolina
Arrangements have been made by the North Carolina State Firemen’s Association to hold a fire college and drill school in Asheville, April 30 to May 2. Sherwood Brockwell of Raleigh, state fire marshal, is chairman of the arrangements committee. About 150 persons are expected to attend the school.
The school will be under the supervision of Assistant Chief J. C. Fitzgerald, drill master of the Asheville Fire Department; Lieutenant Fink of Lenoir and Lieutenant Crume of Wilmington. The two lieutenants are graduates of the New York Fire College.
Many men prominent in the fire prevention and fire fighting fields have been invited to lecture at the school. At the present time, no announcement has been made of the final program. The lectures will be given at the Central Fire Station and the drill school will use the department’s drill tower.
