WCS. 24 Oct 1951. Ceduna. At the October meeting of the District Council of Murat Bay, it was decided to amend previous arrangements concerning the fire siren installation at Ceduna. It was resolved that the telephone be installed in the fire reel shed, next to the fire siren control board. In the event of a fire being reported to the switchboard operator, the siren would be sounded by the operator. This would summon either the fire chief, Mr A E Howlett, or his deputy. Contact could then be made with the switch board without delay. Mr Howlett reported that a new length of hose and nozzles were required by his unit to complete the equipment. As from October 15, the siren will be sounded for testing purposes at the following times. Monday to Friday, inclusive, 12.30pm, Saturdays 12 noon.
