Vamps Fear Integration

Vamps Fear Integration

Westchester County, N. Y., Volunteer Firemen’s Association at its April 14 quarterly meeting unanimously condemned a proposed State bill which would create the office of Commissioner of Safety in certain towns, giving him full power over police and fire services.

The 150 delegates, representing 160 of the 162 fire units in the County, felt the bill would be the opening wedge for the integration of both services and an unanimous vote urged Governor Harriman to veto the measure.

The full weight of the New York State Firemen’s Association and the Hudson Valley Firemen’s Association, as well as all County organizations, is being sought to have Mr. Harriman exercise his veto.
