Despite »he fact that we have in Kossuth County some of the best fire protection and most efficient fire departments in the state, we cannot rely solely on that for the prevention of costly farm fires. For farm fires most often get a big head start, before fire-fighting equipment can reach the scene. That's why it's doubly important that farmers check their places for fire hazards and eliminate them. Also, it's a wise suggestion to check your fire insurance. Let's make Kossuth County "fire safe" in town and country during the coming year! This Timely Message Published In The Interst of Our Farmers by Your Co-op Elevators West Bend Elevator Co.
