' "IffiB II CHANCE EXACTS BIG TOLL CARELES6NES8 SHOWN TO BE RE SPONSIBLE FOR MOST OF FIRE LOOSES. - Commissioner Walter Bell Would Makt tha Stat Fireproof and Acka Publico Aid. Mr. J. W. Hedgepeth In the Memphis Commercial Appeal, a groat Southern newspaper, has written Instructively on the dangers of "Taking a Chance In tho matter of fires. Jhero Is one problem, he says, now confronting tha people of Tennessee, one in which all. Individually and collectively, are vital ly interested, and that is fire preven tion. It stands out most prominently and demands tha sane thought and the test effort of the entire cltlaenship. Medical selenos has Droved that it Is much easier to prevent a disease than to combat an epidemic. If this Is true In the matter of diseases that affect the health of tho people, the same lino of reasoning can be logical ly applied to tho fire problem. Thus, It Is apparent to oven tho average citizen that it is decidedly easier to prevent a fire than to control and check a conflagration. In tho past Tennessee, along with other southern states, has suffered nu merous fires, many very disastrous and others less in scope, which have not been confined to any given town, city or community, but practically all sections have been called upon to pay tribute to the fire demon. There can be no dodging the fact that carelessnessNhas exacted a toll greater than any one thing in all his tory. It is responsible for 90 per cent of the fatalities and accidents of a less serious nature- In life and property loss carelessness is the one "big de mon of destruction" that stalks about tho business office, the factory, the mercantile establishments, in the shops in the homes and on the farms. Most accidents could be avoided, if proper precautions were taken. Tennessee should be made as near "fireproof" as possible. To this end It behooves every individual citizen to guard most zealously his own property and the property of his neighbors. Study the habits of those about you. If you detect a bad stovepipe, a defec tive flue, electric wiring below the standard or notice the reckless han dling of gasoline, kerosene or other highly inflamable oils or chemicals by anyone, eall the proprietor's attention to these facts. If he does not correct them report him to tho authorities. Some stores allow trash and waste pa per to accumulate. In the cotton sec tion some merchants pile up large amounts of sample cotton In the store. Some keep open grates and are not careful to protect the coals from roll ing, out when closing up at night. Jan itors are rather careless in the furnace rooms. There are many other pieces of carelessness indulged in which should be looked after. In this way you will be doing the community a great service as well as protecting your own property and safeguarding your business against a probable fire. There are hundreds of fires or "un known origin," which, if a thorough in vestigation were made, in many cases, would reveal the fact that someone was to blame. Here is one fact that we can't dodse: Every time a fire occurs due to a preventable cause the derelict is morally responsible for the destruc tion of the property. He may be be yond the arm of the law, but in the true sense he is morally accountable for the loss sustained. If the people will co-operate with the "fire prevention department" of . the State of Tennessee and observe every rule of precaution, fires can be re duced to a minimum and the wanton waste of property stopped. That de structive fires in the main can be pre vented is most gratifying. But what does It take to bring about this happy condition? - - Every individual co-operating. Team work was a great dynamic force during the war in successfully putting the various drives "over." I would suggest that every town in Ten nessee organize a "fire prevention squad," whose duty it would be to-cooperate with the state organization, Inspect suspicious buildings at close Intervals and report their findings and render whatever assistance, possible to propagate a system of education that will eventually enlist the service of the whole community. Start a campaign of publicity in your town, start a "clean-up" cam paign. Organize a civic league if you have no such organization and get the ladies to join in. Make your town as near immune against fire as possible, and in doing this you will have a more healthful place in which to live and bring to light a "city beautiful." Get the people to thinking and soon they will naturally become Interested and active for a bettor order of things. Fires are needless waste. Preserve your busi ness and protect your property and your town by aiding In every way to step the millions of dollars worth of waste annually.
