MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THIRTEEN Fire Protection for Rural Areas Is Being Sought Out of the central west comes a new move in the field of rural fire prevention, that promises to reduce fire waste which each year takes a toll of one hundred million dollars of /arm property, The rural districts h a v e stood defenseless against fire unless by lucl;y chance the lire should be discovered in its early stages when it would yield to the primitive method ot dousing it with a pail of wa- ler. For many years towns and cities have developed more and more efficient fire protection from the original hand apparatus to the fast motorized equipment. While rural losses have attracted much attention and val- .uable educational work in the field of fire prevention has been done by the agricultural committee of the national /ire waste council and other organizations, there has been, until now, no systematic movement to extend organized fire protection to the farms. Manufacturers have now developed efficient motorized equipment especially adapted to fiirm service, and (he greatly improved roads make it possi- ·ble for this equipment to bo moved rapidiy from headquarters to the scene of a fire within a radius of. 10 miles.
