A Salute To The ALGONA FIRE DEPARTMENT FOR THEIR GOOD WORK DURING THE PAST YEAR One year ago, the firms below extended a salute to the "Fire Laddies" of Algona. Now, a year later, that same expression of qppreciation is in order. While ogr Fire Department can now be considered to be at its peak in fire-fighting personnel, and also in modern fire-fighting equipment, the emphasis is still to be placed on Fire Prevention. That is where all of us, business and citizen alike, can do our part. All should cooperate with the "Fire Laddies" by helping to reduce the number of fire hazards present on property, home or business alike. So do your part during Fire Prevention Week — check and eliminate all fire hazards! this message of appreciation published by the following public-spirited firms: SARGENT & CO. Algeria, Ipwg JOS.
