The youngsters are members o the Junior Fire Marshal program, and this year they are putting on a campaign to reduce the number of fires and accidents that occur during the holiday season. An unusual and colorful part of the pupils' campaign will be the use of special seals stressing safe- ty in connection with seasonal fire hazards, automobiles and playtime activities. "Unfortunately, statistics show that the Christmas and New Year's holidays are one of the worst times o fthe year for fires and accidents," points out A. Roy Dunn. The A. Roy Dunn agency is sponsoring the Junior Fire Mar- shal program in Mason County as part of a national fire preven- tion and safety program of The Hartford Insurance Group. THE JUNIOR FIRE Marshal safety seals will focus attention on the need to take particular care during the holidays. The seals which come in three different de- signs, carry these reminders: "Obey Traffic Signals," "Avoid Accidents/Ply Safe," and "Watch Out For Fire." The youngsters will put the seals on Christmas gifts, party in- vitations, Christmas cards, letters and thank-you notes. The seals are furnished to the youngsters free of charge and are not for gale, adds Dunn. As another part of their cam- paign, the Junior Fire Marshals will make Christmas tree safety tags. The tags will list the was(s to prevent the danger of the tree catching on fire while in the house. The JFM list will carry these reminders: 1. Stand trce in water or bucket of wet sand. 2. Check tree lights for frayed wire. loose sockets. 3. Keep tree away from radiator, fireplace and doors. 4. Use only fire-resistant decor- ations. 5. Turn off tree lights when you go out. 6.
