Squad Wagon Urged for Camden
A recommendation has been made that a squad car be provided for Camden, N. J. Advocates of the plan believe that one of the police squad wagons could be converted into a rescue car without much difficulty.
At present there are twenty trained men who are versed in rescue work. The squad is being increased to a personnel of fifty, under command of Senior Captain William Van Pfefferle.
The equipment carried by the squad includes a 14-foot collapsible row boat and grappling irons used in drownings; an inhalator, oxygen and carbon dioxide tanks, and a complete doctor’s emergency kit.
