  The official Postal Guide for May calls the attention of post masters and rural carriers to an order of the Post Office Department that the carriers report to the proper authorities all forest fires detected along their routes. This order was issued at the request of the Secretary of Agriculture.
  For several years in some sections of the country a sort of informal understanding has existed between National Forest rangers and mail carriers with the idea of securing increased fire protection. The marked effectiveness of the cooperation was a strong argument in favor of its extension and official sanction, and was in part responsible for the request of the Secretary of Agriculture which resulted in the order by the Post Office Department.
  The plan is for the carrier to report a fire to the nearest forest officer on the route, or if no officer lives on the route, to have him notify by some responsible citizens. State and National foresters are supplied with post road maps and with postal guides containing the address of the different postmasters. The postmasters in turn are supplied by the foresters the names, addresses, and telephone call numbers of forest officers residing on or near the carriers routes.
