Description

Functions of the Committee on Organized Public Support. – The statement of objectives itself definitely outlines the purpose and functions of the Committee on Organized Public Support. The major emphasis, in all publicity and promotion in connection with the President’s Conference and thereafter, should be on safety to life.

The Committee is not a mere publicity or promotional group appointed to advertise the Conference, to assist in building up attendance, and then to sink into obscurity. Rather, as the name indicates, it is a group representing many of the important national, civic, service, business, fraternal, labor, farm, veteran, and similar men’s, women’s, and youth’s organizations that have either a humanitarian or an economic interest in fire safety – the protection of human life and the conservation of material resources. Each of the above-named groups has the organizational facilities, the know-how, and the manpower to render valuable assistance in promoting the purpose of the Conference. They are the groups that can contribute most importantly to developing organized public support throughout the nation.
