There has been a great deal of misunderstanding as to the position of the Civil Defence Volunteers who may be called upon by their employees to carry out Fire Watchers' duties at their place of work.

The minister of Home Security has made it quite clear that Volunteers for the Civil Defence Services are exempt from carrying out duties under the Fire Prevention (Business Premises) Order, 1941, and that no pressure whatever should be brought on effective members of the Civil Defence Services to leave those Sevices and take up fire fighting duties at the places of employment.

It is hoped that this information will remove any misunderstandings that may have arisen.
