OCT. 1 0 AS FIRE
In the following proclamation Gov
ernor Thomas E. Campbell sets aside
October 10 as Fire Prevention Day:
That America cannot afford to dal
ly with the fire fiend or to relax her
vigilance, becomes increasingly ap
parent as the long list of ruinous
conflagrations, frequently attended
by loss of life, continues seemingly
Despite the fact that wt are con
stantly being urged to exercise pre
cautions for the prevention of fires
and .the. costly experiences which we
continue to undergo, a great deal still
remains to be accomplished before
we shall have attained the goal de
sired, namely that of doing away
with all preventable fires. When we
reflect upon the, fact that approxi
mately 15,000 persons, mvrt of them
women and children, are burned to
death in the United States each year,
a much larger number are serious
ly injured, and property amounting
to billions of dollars destroyed, it
brings forcibly to mind the neces
sity for constant and never-flagging
effort to hold in check this monster
Obviously every day should be ob
served as Fire Prevention Day, but In
order that a special effort may be
made to impress upon the public
mind the urgent necessity of observ
ing all prdper precautions to safe
guard us from fire. It has been re
quested by the President that the
10th dav of October be set apart for
this purpose. It has been aptly sug
gested that there be told In each of
our schools on the day named, the
Fiftieth Anniversary of the disas
trous Chicago fire, the story of that
destructive conflagration brought
about through man's carelessness.
Now, therefore, 1, Thomas E.
Campbell, Governor of the State of
Arizona, do hereby designate Monday,
October 10, 1921, as Fire Prevention
Day, and I urge every citizen to
take an jactive part in all measures
looking toward the prevention of
fires., Tt Is requested that the day
be observed by clearing up and abat
ing all circumstances of iivflamnble
material and abolishing a tire haz
ards wherever same may be found.
Let the day become Mie of rigid in
vestigation of all premises with a
view of preventing the Incepton of
conflagrations. In this worthy mom
ent our churches can be of great as
sistance in spreading the doctrine
of carefulness from the puloit and
through the Sunday School. The pro
motion in our schools of systematic
instruction in fire prevention should
be given special attention on this day,
in order that there may come about
at frequent intervals a recurrence of
public realization to the ever-present
peril of fire and the means whereby
this calamitous destruction of life
ajid property may be averted.
In Witness Whereof. I have here
unto set my hand and caused the
Great Seal of the State to be affixpd.
Done at Phoenix, the - Capital, this
30th dav of September. 1921.
