This Day in History: 1934-03-09
Chief Roy Monroe reported that there had been two fires in town during the month of February, during the monthly meeting of Company No. 1 at the fire house. A demonstration of the company’s new carbon dioxide pressure system was announced for the next day so that all of the members could see how the system worked. This replaced the old sulphuric acid process and would permit the company to fight gasoline fires more easily. Three new members were inducted: Jesse A. Slavin, Allan Winter and William J. Wrathall Jr. Twenty-two members enjoyed the dinner which followed the business meeting.
