Forming a Fire Dept. In the Ridge Section


 Plans Are the Work of the Civic Association – Firehouse Will Be Ready for Use Soon

   At a meeting of the Ridge Civic Association, Inc., Monday night at the school, largely attended by regular members and those seeking admission to membership, plans were perfected for the formation of the Ridge Fire department, whose fire house on Route 25 will be completed and ready for use soon.  Frank Mooney of Sally lane, Pine Woods, is in charge of the committee forming the Fire department.

   Arrangements, under the guidance of Mrs. And Mrs. Charles Geissler of Medford road, who have had considerable theatrical experience, have been initiated for a house-warming, probably over the July Fourth week-end.

   A short talk on civilian defense was given Monday night by William G. McFarland, civil engineer, who has spent the past winter in following the course given at New York university on the subject and who has collected considerable data both from the Federal government and authoritative sources abroad.  A resolution was unanimously adopted to offer the services of the Ridge Civic association to the Civilian Defense committee of Suffolk county.  To encourage membership among the youth of the community, initiation fees have been suspended during a proposed membership drive which is to launched at once.
