The proposed Mt. Gayler department will vary from; all of .these types somewhat. For one think, it \vill be served- entirely by volunteer firemen. This is possible because the .engine will be housed on Highway 71 in a heavily populated area where men can reach the firehouse in a matter of minutes.

Fewer and fewer, farmers arc yielding to the temptation to burn off (heir fields and -woods BS aids to "early greening" and "tick control." And . in scattered areas rural people are steps to combat fires after they start.: The most Important stop is being taken near Winslow, where residents of the Mt. Gaylor arco are conducting a campaign to finance the organization and equiplng of a true r u r a l . fire department. Near Sprinpjdalc, and again in the area around Prairie Grove, farmers have contributed toward :he purchase of fire engines which .answer rural alarms.- In neither case w i l l - t h e result be a rural fire department, since th' apparatus at both cities will b housed in the municipal fire house and operated by city voluntee Firemen. But, even though the pcopli who contributed toward purchasi of these fire trucks did not 'Or :anizc fire departments' devotee o combating rural blazes, the; did recognize the need for fin )rotection and moved to secure a certain amount Presumably, to make the out. fiide-thc-clty-hmits activities o' their firemen fully legal, both Sprlngdale and Prairie Grove wil adopt enabling ordinances giving (heir fire departments authority to. operate beyond the municipa boundaries. Authority Not Here At present almost all Arkansas citids which still respond with fire equipment to alarms outside (he cliics--and many of (hem no longer do--go .without any lega blessing. Without a specific ordinance, cities exceed their authority when dispatching trucks to rural fires. Indeed, until the 1951 legislature passed a law allowing cities ami (owns to adopt ordinances permitting, nut-of-clty operations by firemen, (here was no "legal' way (he engines could pass (ho city limits. Of course (hey did and in many cases s(ill do, bu( nol without risk.

Several Type* These rural departments are of several types,- although all serve exactly the same purpose. Some ire owned by Ihe chief who sells lis fire company's services lo Ihe ·csidcnls of the area at so much i year. Others are owned by farm or- lanizations which depend on an- lual membership assessments to keep the department going. Still others are Hie property of fire improvement districts. These are owned by the residents of a dis- rict much as are the sewer lines of a sewer improvement district. The people pay annual assessments to the districl for (he up- tcep of Irucks and firemen.
