ANNUAL FIRE REPORT, 1957

The Lee Fire Department answered 20 calls in 1957
with damage estimated at $35,000. The trailer fire at
the Traffic Circle accounted for $33,000 of this amount.
The remaining amount was accountable to the follow-
ing fires: a shed at Dr. Howarth's, a barn at Laney's
two auto fires, one flooded oil burner and nine woods
and grass fires. Lee responded to five out-of-town calls ;
three to Madbury, one to Barrington and one to cover
the Durham Fire Station. The Department called for
assistance once in 1957 ; Durham responded by sending
equipment to the Laney fire. Dover and Durham sent
apparatus to the trailer fire and Madbury sent equip-
ment to the Newtown Plains woods fire.

The Fire Department members burned the Dump
almost every week through the dry parts of the year,
the men thereby gaining some experience in using the
equipment.

The Fire Department Auxiliary has been most help-
ful again this year giving the Fire Department a port-
able pump and helping to purchase a portable genera-
tor and lights.

FOREST FIRE PREVENTION IS EVERYBODY'S
BUSINESS

New Hampshire faces a continuing challenge in its
forest fire problem — 97 per cent of all our forest fires
being man-caused and preventable — a serious in-
dictment of interest in our own welfare and that of
our neighbor. Both the state and the towns are striv-
ing diligently to effectively meet the challenge through
education of the public to the threat fire presents to
our woodlands, by maintaining a well trained corps
or wardens and deputy wardens in every community
and by providing ample opportunity for all who wish
to dispose of unwanted waste materials. Careless and
perverseness, however, continue to be the big hurdles.

Thoughtlessly discarded lighted cigars, cigarettes



36



and matches from moving vehicles, by hikers, hunters
and fishermen: careless burning of debris during haz-
ardous periods in dangerous locations ; illegal burning ;
improperly extinguished debris, camp and cook fires —
all result in serious loss of property, disruption of
industry and farm work and unnecessary expenditure
of town and state funds.

To meet the challenge successfully, the state, your
community and your local forest fire warden need
YOUR thoughtful and cooperative effort — the rules
are simple.

1. Don't burn at home — use your town dump and
avoid all fire problems. Hours Wednesday 1 to 8 p.m.,
Saturday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

2. If you do burn, be sure to secure a written
permit from your local forest fire warden when the
ground is not covered with snow. Permits are required
for open debris fires, home incinerators, outdoor fire
places and camp fires. Your warden is instructed to
permit burning if weather conditions, site and type of
burning are safe.

3. Be sure that all lighted material — cigars, cig-
arettes and matches — are completely out before dis-
carding them. Use ash trays in automobiles.

4. Make certain that your debris, camp and cook
fires are completely out before leaving them.

5. Insist that others be careful and comply with
burning requirements.

6. Call the warden promptly when fire is detected
and aid him to extinguish it.

REMEMBER — the fire you prevent might be the
one which could burn your property.

REMEMBER — Forest fire prevention is everybody's
business and our most important undertaking.

REPORT OF BUILDING INSPECTOR

During the calendar year of 1957, eighteen (18)
building permits were issued in the following general
classifications :

New dwellings 9

Apartment building (7 apartments) 1

Remodel or add rooms to dwelling 2

Garage and breezeway 1

Storage buildings and barns 2

Summer cottages 2.

Boat shop 1

Total 18

There are three matters that need attention in con-
nection with the ordinance:

1. Many wait until construction is started before
securing permit.

2. Most fail to notify the building inspector when
the building is ready for final inspection and certifi-
cation for occupancy.

S. There is no terminal date to a permit. This al-
lows for a building to be started and never finished
within intent of the building ordinance.
Respectfully submitted,

RALPH H. GRANGER,

Building Inspector.

NEW HAMPSHIRE SEACOAST REGIONAL
DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION

Report of the President and Executive Secretary
Year Ending September 15, 1957

This twenty-third annual report will briefly touch
upon some of the more im.portant events of the as-
sociation's activities.

The distribution of our ever popular information
and guide book "The Seacoast Region of New Hamp-
shire Awaits Your Pleasure," has been significant in
that a record number have been mailed directly to
individuals definitely interested in the Region and the
State.

More than forty per cent of the 25,000 published
have been sent to these individuals upon personal re-
quest and through selections from authentic lists of
inquiries for the information the book contains. The
remaining sixty per cent v/ere effectively used through
the various valuable information services in the United
States and Canada.

The six regional associations joined in an exhibit



39



at the Boston Herald Travelcade in November 1956
and will participate again in October 1957.

The $1,175,000.00 Federal Project removing hazards
to navigation in Portsmouth Harbor and the Piscata-
qua River is now completed. A resolution for authori-
zation of further surveys in the upper part of the
River has been presented by Congressman Chester E.
Merrow to the Public Works Committee of the U. S.
House of Representatives.

Sponsored by the (State) Harbor Advisory Com-
mittee of which the Executive Secretary is Chairman,
legislation creating a New Hampshire Port Authority
has been enacted.

Full surveys of Rye and Hampton Harbors by the
U. S. Army Engineers have been completed and favor-
able reports are expected soon.

Determined efforts have been exerted for recon-
struction of the State Pier at Hampton Harbor.

Funds have been allotted for a study by Army En-
gineers on extension downstream of the Cocheco River
Flood Control Project.

Legislation recreating the N. H. Shore Fisheries
Advisory Committee has been enacted.

Sponsored by our Mosquito Control Committee, leg-
islation enabling establishment of insect and pest con-
trol districts in the State has been enacted.

The Association services through the Executive Sec-
retary and Prof. C. F. Jackson of our Fisheries Com-
mittee, cooperating with the Portsmouth Rotary Club,
the Portsmouth Y. M. C. A., Camp Gundalow and the
Town of Greenland, were instrumental in securing the
Winnicut River Dam.

Extensive data on the Region for a directory of His-
toric Lore in New Hampshire were compiled by Mrs.
F. W. Randall for our Historic Sites Committee.



40



Legislation for the study of the pollution problem in
Great Bay and the Rivers has been enacted.

Through action of our Agricultural Committee in
addition to 4-H Clubs merit awards, the club leaders
now receive the National 4-H News Magazine.

Some of these objectives were initiated or sponsored
by the Association and in others every possible assist-
ance has been extended. Special consideration should
be given to the good services of our legislators. In
these and other endeavors our associations v^n'th other
groups and agencies, Local, State and Federal have
been harmonious and productive.

Also the cooperative work of the Six Neighborly Re-
gions of New Hampshire has brought forth many ex-
pressions of commendation. Our greatest need is more
interest and support in our constructive purposes.

ALTON P. TOBEY,

President.

ALVIN F. REDDEN,

Executive Secretary.
