TRARALGON FIRE BRIGADE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 18 August 1914
TRARALGON FIRE BRIGADE Chief-Officer Marshall made an inspection of the Traralgon Fire Brigade and plant on July 8 last. The following are some of his comments in his report, furnished to the brigade:- Fire Plugs (43): All indicated. Recent fires have emphasised the necessity of putting down addi tional plugs. At one fire a quar ter of a mile of hose was required to reach the fire; in another 1500 feet in one continuous length &nbsp; would have been required to reach the fire-a distance much too great for successful fire extinction work. The remedy is a few extra plugs. Both of these fires were across the creek, where the town is rapidly progressing. A plan clearly showing the size of the mains, and the position of the fire plugs is displayed in the sta tion. Inspection: The weather was very bad, cold and wet, but not withstanding the adverse weather there was an excellent attendance at inspection, 18 out of 20 being present.
