Essential to the accomplishment of such objectives are: 1) Universal acceptance by the highest officials of the States and municipalities of their firect responsibility for fire safety. The acceptance of the same principle by Federal executives charged with the responsibility for Federal properties is requisite. 2) Public support from all possible sources behind such officials in accomplishing the enactment and enforcement of adequate laws and ordinances for fire prevention and fire protection.
