Joe Larson remembers the threat of fires on the Cape.

While waitng for Hurricane Irene to hit Massachusetts this last weekend I thought about Camp Clark and what we would have been facing as counselors were a storm like this to arrive durning the camp season. The closest that I could come to such an event was to recall our concern about forest fires which were common on the Cape in the 1940's and 1950's.

Fire brooms and buckets were posted around the camp. Anxious parents would sometimes call to Director if they heard of a fire at Camp Edwards Army camp, but thank goodness that during my years we never had a serious threat.

Thanks Joe for the memory and for passing it on. Wayne
