To Prevent Fires
Although Ben Franklin diaeovAmd
the lightning rod . a century and a
half ago, many farmers still aren't
making use of it to protect (heir
nomes and other buildings.
This is pointed out by C. W, Over
man, county farm agent for the State
College Extension Service, who says
failure to -protect buildings with light-
ninir rndn in nnn f Hha phiat miuu
. of farm fires.
-Catting attention to National Fire
Prevention Week, proclaimed y Presi
dent Truman for October -7-13, Mr.
Overman says 3,500 lives and 100 mil
lion dollars in property will be lost
by American farmers during the com
ing year unless they take immediate
steps to eliminate the causes of fires.
These causes, he adds, include de
fective, sooty, and poorly constructed
chimneys; sparks from chimneys and
bonfires falling on flammable wood
shingle roofs; defective stoves and
furnaces; careless smoking habits; Im
proper storage of gasoline and kero
sene; spontaneous ignition of hay;
and overloaded' electrical circuits, fail
ure to replace worn cords, and defec
tive electrical appliances.
County Agent Overman urges farm
ers to correct these hazardous condi
tions during Fire Prevention Week,
before the winter heating season
starts when fires are more prevalent
The National Fire Prevention As
sociation, which sponsors the special
week, says, rural fires occur at the
rate of one every five minutes. Proof
that many of these are due to care
lessness is shown by the fact that af
ter Fire Prevention Week each year,
there is an abrupt and sharp drop in
the number of fires occurring through
out the country.
