Fire Protection Equipment Accomplishments and Needs
Abstract:In less than twenty years, from nearly a zero start, equipment for fighting forest fires has taken on specialized form but it is still far from satisfactory. The author, a specialist in forest fire control for nearly twenty years, outlines briefly the equipment already developed and points to improvements still needed which should challenge inventive genius. His article suggests the need for a nation-wide inventory of forest fire equipment and a co[odiaeresis]rdination of the regional efforts to improve it.
