Forest Fire Training
A one day Forest Fire Training
school has just been completed at
Camp F-24, Robbinsville. All for
est officials attended the school.
Methods of handling fires was the
main training job. The foresters re
turned to their jobs upon comple
tion of the school confident that
this year their efforts at suppress
ing fires would be very successful.
They felt that the continued co
operation of local residents will be
a big help in attaining a good rec
ord. January and February were
passed without a fire to, darken the
horizon and continued care by
everyone . in the Nantahala forest
will enable these fire fighters to
continue their good work.
