Fir* prevention is more than a set of rules. II must be an awareness of exposed or faulty wiring, a carelessly dropped cigarette, an overloaded circuit, or a furnace that has not been properly Inspected. Very few fires start by chance. Most are caused by ignorance or neglect, and hurt not only the property owner, but the community as well. Lady Luck simply can't be trusted as an effective substitute for sound fire preventive practices. The only really effective method is to be continually aware of the numerous fire causes. Druggish) Mutual has grown with Iowa and Kossuth County for over 56 years, and has actively supported fir* prevention at every opportunity. Through experience comes ability and wisdom, and we are happy to extend our time and efforts to the "Thought of the month ......... THE PREVENTION OF FIRE."
