Reduces Fire Insurance
Lee Cormany, Fire Chief, is in
receiptof the following commun
ication from the Underwriters'
Equitable Rating Bureau, which
explains itself:
Dear Sir: In response to your
favor of tho Gth inst, inquiring
the amount of reduction in fire
insurance rates in St. Johns, pro
vided combination hose and
chemical automobile fire truck
is placed in service, with two
fully paid firemen to man same.
beg to advise as follows:
It has been our experience that
two men arc insufficient to handle
such a piece of apparatus with
any degree of efficiency. Dur
ing meal hours, if only two men
were employed, there would be
but one on duty, and it is very
evident thnt one man cannot han
dle the apparatus referred to.
We would, therefore, ask that
not less than three fully paid
firemen be maintained at head
quarters houso.
The approximate reduction,
provided our rcquset is complied
with and the apparatus purchas
ed is satisfactory, would amount
to from EIGHT to TEN PER
CENT. -Signed, James N. Mc
Cune, Secretary.
