Have your fire fighting equipment ready at all times," warned Norman Butcher in a demonstration on "Farm Fire Fi~-~hting Equipment" at the Sunny Valley 4-H meeting on October 24. The fire prevention program aso included a talk on "Fire Extinguishers" by Dale i Mark, a local hardware dealer. "Make your fire extinguishers something else besides an orna- ment," he said.
