Union Springs Proud of Its Record
According to D. M. Slaughter, State Fire Marshal of Alabama, “Union Springs has every reason to be proud of its Fire Chief. Henry J. Rosentihl.” In the Chief’s annual report is the information that the city has suffered a gross fire loss of only fifty-five dollars. The department protects property valued at $77,700.
In commenting on the low loss, Chief Rosentihl said:
“I can not help but believe that my continuous hammering away through the columns of The Herald, cautioning our people to make their homes and places of business ‘fire prevention quarters,’ has had much to do with the carefulness they have exercised in keeping down fires.”
