08/28/12 87 W - + 9 - 3 Vintage Film: Our Obligation

From a reader, here's another vintage short film. This one's about school building fire safety, and depicts a full-scale building fire in Los Angeles. Lots of great apparatus shots, and a surprising amount of real fire and smoke that's been staged. Presumably staged, that is. (Plus real victims and real bodies under sheets. No punches pulled in this one!) Running time is 24:27 minutes. Can also be viewed (and even a copy ordered) on the local AV Geeks web site. Thanks Chad!

Amusing footnote to this. From the July 22, 1963, minutes of the Raleigh Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary: “The President turned the meeting over to Vivian Carter who introduced Captain Rufus Keith. He showed the group a movie called ‘Our Obligation’.”
