The fire protection association here described is an example of a successful coöperative effort between individuals and the state. The protection work in the region discussed has a four-fold support: the association contributes on a one-cent-per-acre basis; the state contributes 25 per cent of its receipts from the sale of fishing and hunting licenses; the county pays suppression costs; and the federal government gives financial aid under the Clarke-McNary law. The state directs and supervises the work but the association keeps in close contact with it through field managers and otherwise shows its interest in adequate protection.
