Sometimes a buckdraft from the chimney will extinguish the flame. "Then oil continues to flow into the stove and someone relights it. tagging of keroaen* containers.

They art available en r«que*t from the County Health Unit or home demonstration sjent. he said. Chief Hend praised the present volunteer firemen of th» department and reminded Blytheville residents that "our boys have been working hard for the past two years to Improve our fire fighting facilities and ability.

Two Thing* to Do "Here are two things to do when your oil heater goes out: "1. Open the draft control at the back of the stove and leave It open until all surplus oil IB burned out This way, the stove won't get any hotter. "2. Don't relight the >tov« cntl the 'pot' cools off." Chief Head said If thes« two rule« are followed, trouble with oil heat era will b* greatly reduced. "However," he emphasized, "WL don't want people to get the idea we don't want to be called.

School* are conducted by Instructors on the department who have attended lire schools at Llt- ;le Rock three times per year and hold instructors' cards Issued by the state. George C. Ford and Roy Moore hold these cardi. "We are now having a first aid school taught by L. D. Lewis, volunteer fireman, who holds a state first aid Instructor's card and one from Southwestern Bell Telephone Company," Chief Head said. The chief made the following recommendations as "how to live longer in public emergencies." taken from the National Fire Protection Association: 1. Always be prepared for fire. When entering buildings, choose nearest exit and alternate path of escape. Locked or obstructed exits or fire hazards should be reported. 2. It Is always dangerocs to 'remain in a burning building. Fires often spread rapidly and cut off escape and are likely to generate poisonous gases. 3. Take no chances of entering a burning building to save property. Only the saving of lives Justifies taking a personal risk. Leave the Job of fire fighting to firemen. 4. If fire breaks out and there Is a panic-rush for the main exit, keep out of the crowd and attempt to find some other means of escape. Above all, keep . calm I 6.
