It seems that in 191 there was a revi sion of the insurance rates made on account of the fire truck being pur chased by the city. Some of the down town risks were reduced while others were increaseL The dwelling rates were increased. An old established in surance agency tells us that the aver age of all risks combined were really increased rather than decreased at that time. Last year it cost the city more money to maintain the fire department than it did all the insurance comban ies combined in losses paid out on fire losses. The insurance companies must have received in the neighborhood of $25,000.00 in premiums and paid in losses about $3,000.00 where it cost the city $5,091.00 for fire protection while the insurance companies reaped the benefit. We are working on ways and means to reduce this expense and not impair the efficiency of our department. Une plan is to station our fire truck in the Lowry & Henry garatre where they are the only concern which have a man on duty at night. This would cost the city $10.00 per month p!u. $2.00 for each time the truck is called out on fires. There are four men available during the day time and one on duty all night who can drive the truck to fires. This arrangement would cost the city about $200.00 per year to get the truck to fires. In addition we would have a man whose first duty would be to inspect the truck and ap paratus each day to see that an was ready to go and to attend to the fire hose etc. after fires.
