Anchor: #i1004301


All maintenance employees are to exert every possible precaution to prevent grass fires on the right of way. When such fires occur, employees must use all means possible to extinguish them before they spread and endanger adjoining property. In timbered and ranch areas, where quick action must be taken, maintenance personnel should be equipped with suitable small tools or any other equipment necessary for quickly extinguishing a fire.
