Abstract:The wartime Forest Fire Fighters' Service, established under the Office of Civilian Defense, has had a short but highly successful career. It has filled a need in most states for a better means of pooling the efforts of nonurban fire-protection agencies, and it has had the advantage of enlisting citizens in a voluntary service that needed no foreign invasion to be both timely and practical. Many of the states have plans to hold the gains made in state-wide cooperative fire control by keeping the organization alive after the sponsorship of the O.C.D. is terminated. This account of the organization and accomplishments of the Forest Fire Fighters' Service in Indiana provides an example of what the cooperative spirit can and does accomplish.
