ELGIN, OKLAHOMA. THURSDAY, HKPTKMBKR 25,
FIRE PREVENTION DAY
Commemorating tho disastrous fire at Chicago on October 9, mil.
Oklahoma will Join In tho movement of many of her sister stales and
obsorvn October 9 as "Flro Prevention" day throughout the stnto. A
proclamation designating that dato as Flro Provcntlon day has been
Issued by Governor Cruco on tho rciiuo.it of State Firo Marshal Ham
mond. In his proclamation tho governor calls attention to tho great loss
by firo In tho state each year and points out why nn "ounce of preven
tion Is worth a pound of euro."
Following Is tho proclamation;
'To tho I'euplo of tho Slate of Oklahoma Grcotlnr.-
"For tho past two year tho pooplo of this stnto have obsorved In
a general way Flro Provcntlon day. Tho results of tho offortR on tho
part of tho people of this stato to reduce the waste from lire has been
encouraging.
"Kfllcloncy In flro prevention Is not commensurate with efllcloncy
In flro fighting. Oklahoma has learned how to discover nnd extin
guish fire, hut has not learned all that can bo learned nbout pre
venting fires. The property In till stato dpstroypd by flro In 1912 was
valued at $2,193,0S4,0, much of which might have been saved had
our methods of flro preventing boon as ofTlclcnt ns our, methods of
extinguishment. We have devoted ourselves ns Individuals and ns
n state to tho task of preventing disease, crime, Immorality and other
Ills which tend to kill and destroy. Is It not time that wo should de
vote oursolvcs to tho prevention of flro, tho most common nnd the
most destructive, perhaps, of all?
"It hub paid the owners of property In the pnst to obsorvo Flro
Provcntlon day. Other states havo adopted tho custom of proclaim
ing October 9, thn anniversary of tho disastrous flro In Chicago In
1871. as Flro Prevention day. The advantage In hnvlng nn early dnte
Is that tho attention of thn people may be called to the Importance
of tho care In tho prevention of fires at the very Inception of the
season when artificial heat Is essential to tho comfort of our people.
"Fires are easily prevented It simple paths of knowledgo nro
followed. More thought of the loose match, tho neglected flue, thn
rubbish pile' and the oil rag In n dark corner vIlt capitalize Itself
Into dollars. Therefore, to tho end that wo may conserve not only
our pfoporty but our Uvea nnd safeguard them to tho best of our
ability, I do hereby proclaim October 9 as Flro Prevention day In
tho stato of Oklahoma and do call upon all citizens on that day to
glvo personal attontlon to tho removal of rubbish nnd dobrls from
their premises; to sot their 'heating appliances in safo nnd proper
condition for winter use; to examlno chimneys rind flues that bronk
ngo and cracks may bo properly repaired and that on nil other days
ns woll ns this day they continue the removnl of rubbish nnd com
bustihlo refuse, which by heat will cause spontaneous combustion
"I would suggest that on this day Instructions bo given, to the
children In tho public schools with referenco to tho flro hazard of
matches, gasoline and other volatile oils and that simple methods
for lire prevention and rescue work be taught. I would especially
recommend that the mayor of each city and town within tho stnto
proclaim the above mentioned date as Flro Prevention day for his
city or town and make a special effort to havo all rubbish removed
from the streets and alleys nnd thn vacant lots.
"In testimony whereof 1 havo horeunto sot my hand and caused
tho great seal of tho stato of Oklahoma to bo hereunto nmxed. In
my offlco In Oklahoma City, Okla., this 11th day of September, 1913.
