GANDER RESCUE IS EXA1%fPLE
OF EFFECTIVE COOPERATION
OF FORCES

The rescue operantions at the scene of
the recent crafshh o~f thle Belgian air liner
in Snewfou~ncilland. constituted an out-
standiing example of b~oth international
a7nd inter-service coopileration, as wvell
as dlemonstrating the value of the beli-
reop~ter on rescue emissions.
At thle timle of the clrnshh of this plane
neither the Newfoundlandl or Canadian
Gov~~l~ernment hadl helicopters with
which to performii the rescue work; and
without which the loss of life would
bave unquestiolnably been very much
mor-le s~evere. The C~oast Guardl volun-
teered~ thle use of its helicopters and the
United~ States ArmyI provided the large
air tranusports neededc to get the beli-
copters quickly to the scene. Army per-
sonnel and~ trappers qluickly reached
the scene of the plane crash, but so
severely inju redt were ma ny of the plane
paRssengers that any formn of transpor-
tation other than by' airplane would
bnve been fatal to many. The nature
of the surroundings would not admit
of thie landing of a-ny of the conven-
tional types of p~lane.
Gandler airport, not manny miles from
the scene of the crnsb. oifforded landing
flc~ilities~ for large land p~lanes. A lake
nearer the scene permitted the land-
ing of senplaness andl a small clearing
even closer to the wr~ecked plane, to
which the survivors hadl been carried,
~fford~edl n landing for helicopters.
Tc,ast Guardl helicopters were par-
tially dismantled at the Coast Guard
Air Station, Brooklyn, N. Y., and flown
tot Gander Air~por't by Army T'ransport
C'ommland planes. There they were re-
assemnbled. In making the rescue, the
helicopter moved the survivors from
the small clearing near the scene of the
cra~sh, to a point on the lake where they
were trans~ferrIed to a Coast Guard PBY.
The PBY in~ turn transferred the pa-
tients to the Gander Airport, where
hospital facilities were available. As it
was imperative to move the patients at
the earliest practienblee moment, the
helicopters were used only between the
small clearing and the lake site, thus
saving much timne.

from the lake to thle scle ne ith r'ufts in

It wans decided to make an aerial

At 1000 unloading of HOS had been
completed, and assemlbledl star~ted.
It was decided in ordelrl to~ speed op-
erations that the helicopter wans t, re-
move survivors from the scene of the
crash to the lake site, a1 dlistance lf 7
miles, where a transfer would be made
to the PBY plane, unless the dIctor on
the scene advised against too, much
handling of critically injured suirvivors.
Gasoline andi boalrds were to~ be flown
in to the lake site, and platform built
on soft muskeg for helicopter landing.
The Coast Guardc PBY tookl 017 fr
the lake site to land maiterials and to
advise the rescue party at scene of
crash of the plan. and also to learn the
condition of the surface in the clear-
ing near the crash.
1230 Vannelli, chief aviation manchin-
ist's mate in charge of reassembling the
helicopter estimated~ 3 hours more time
needed to complete the assembly of the
HOS8 (Lieutenant Kleisch's helicopter)
and have it ready for flight. Cr'ew re-
fused to stop work for chow. PBY re-
turned after putting working party
ashore atEake to build the landing

ADDRESS AT NATIONAL SAFETY
CONGRESS DESCRIBES FIRE
FIGHTING RESEARCH
An account of the Const Guard's re-
search and developmentall work in the
held of fire fighting aboard ship was
givena in an address before the thirty-
fourth National Safety Congress and
Exposition. on Oc~tober 9-. by lr. Wil-
liaml T. Butler, chief olf the hazarld pre-
vention section, merchant vessel inspee-
tion dlivision, at Coast GuarLd head- .
quartlers. MIr. Butler's speech not only
dealt with the w~ork accomplished dur- '
inlg the warnl, including an extensive :
tra;ininlg prlograml but with the tests
whlichl arle still under wayp in San Fran-

Excerplts from this speech follow:
Thle wanr needs of ourl fighting forces
oftlou:t gave't impe~tusll to retsearlchl and the
dev~ielopmrent of advanced methods of
prevj\entionL and1C cZotrolt'l cf fir~e on board
shp.The Navy~ and the Coast Guard
leadt inl these crlendeaors~. Fire training
schools wecre srt up on both the east and
we~st coasts: moc0kups) of bo(iler' and en-
gine roomliis were buiilt. andt tests simu-
lating netual conlditionlS atl~at were car-
r~ie out dany after day;: the firets being
controlled andt extinguished by personnel
assigned to the training schools, to fit
themi for the t~s~ks whichl lay ahead.
Thle theories of damange control, chem-
istry~ of fire, types and applienltionl of.
Fortablee fire extinguishlers, and use of
CO., foa~m, fog, andl water as extinguish-
inr: agents were taught and the actual
appliention of eneb wans practiced.
Anl exp~erienlCet in New Yor~k Harbor
whnlln the enrgo ship El EPter~o. with
3,000n tons of ammnitioriin on board,
rnug~ht fire inl its bo~iler room, was the .
impetius which lendl the Coast Guard to
expaRnd its exp~eriments an~d develop a
realistic program of tests in the control
of fires occurring in the engine room
and boiler rooml spaces of sbhips. ::Y
Twe~nty-cone exp~erimental fire tests
were conducted in thle engine and boiler
rooms of a L~iberty-typ~e ship. .i
Low pressure water fog, foam, and
carbon dlioxid~e were used as extin-
guishing agents in these tests. From a
study of case histories preceding the
tests, it is believed the test fires were
more severe than would be expected in
the engine or boiler rooms of operating
vessels under normally conditions. One
of the objectives of these tests was to
determine the possible effect upon ex-~ ~~~
