THE SCHNEIDER SHUT-OFF.
The following testimonial as to the excellence of the Schneider, shut-off shows how thoroughly its excellence is appreciated by Chief Horton and the department of public safety of Baltimore, Md.: “BOARD OF FIRE COMMISSIONERS, CITY HALL, BALTIMORE, November 20, 1902.
“THE GEORGE SCHNEIDER MANUFACTURING COMPANY, BALTIMORE, MD.
“Gentlemen: I beg to acknowledge receipt of your request for testimonial of merit and practicability of your ‘hose shut-off,’ and in reply would say that 1 consider the device a most important factor in the equipment of all modern fire departments. 1 have had the device in use in this department for the past six months, and it has always given most prompt and efficient service on critical occasions, thereby saving much valuable time. I hope in the very near future to have all the apparatus of this department equipped with your ‘hose shut-off.’ Wishing you great success, I beg to remain, very respectfully, GEO. W. HORTON, Chief Engineer.”
An order for six of the shut-offs, dated December 18. 1902, followed this letter in due course.
