07/30/11 77 W, 8 I - + 5 - 6 North Carolina Civil Defense Documents, 1950

Historian Frank Blazich, who operates the fascinating North Carolina Civil Defense History blog, recently found a set of interesting documents. They were authored by Eldred Zed Jones, the first civil defense director in the state's post-World War II civil defense organization. The documents detail planning needs fire and emergency medical services, as well as the use of sirens on emergency vehicles. Great stuff! Thanks, Frank. Click once or twice to enlarge:
