Southern California Chiefs Meet
A number of interesting talks were given at the meeting of the Southern California Fire Chiefs’ Club held at Alhambra several months ago. There were about 110 persons present.
Laron Cowley, Superintendent of Fire Alarms, Alhambra, spoke on two-way radio transmittal and explained the use of ultra high frequencies.
A talk on “Public Relations,” was given by Chief William M. Richard, Glendale. He illustrated his talk with slides, and showed that public opinion is almost infinite in power.
A committee reported that even though first aid work was being done by members of Fire Departments, the cost of such work should not be charged to the departments.
Harry Strasser. Secretary-Treasurer. California State Firemen’s Association, outlined the work which had been done by the state legislature. He urged the firemen to watch the legislature to see that no bills detrimental to the service, would be introduced.
The membership of the club has recently increased from seventy to 113.
