Department of Urban Affairs

IAFF Secretary-Treasurer John C. Kabachus testifies before the U.S. Senate urging the establishment of a Department of Urban Affairs. In his testimony before the U.S. Senate, he cites the fact that many important fire prevention and protection functions have been neglected in urban areas because of lack of funds, planning personnel and local technical expertise. He also points out that a federal agency could aid in the spread of more effective building codes and fire safety standards. The head of the proposed Department would have Presidential Cabinet status.
