The State Fire Administrator was appointed to coordinate the work of preparing local fire departments for the emergencies caused by possible enemy bombing. This series contains correspondence, memoranda, and inventory forms enumerating local war councils' available fire fighting personnel and equipment which were surveyed by the State Fire Administrator to measure the State's capabilities and needs.
A general inventory of each local council's equipment was conducted in 1943 and 1945, though other inventories were made on specific types of equipment at other times. Items inventoried include pumpers and related equipment; personnel; first aid equipment; motorized fire fighting or related equipment; fire alarms and sirens; and hose supplies.
