Rrotection against fire

      August 9 is celebrated in the U.S. under a somewhat unusual name – the so-called Smokey Bear Day.

      Smokey Bear, a cute bear cub that warns about the danger of forest fires, is the symbol of the U.S. Forest Service. In the television series "Protect the forest from fire," Smokey Bear is wearing a hat and jeans and pronounces the phrase: "Only you can prevent forest fires".

      The Forest Service, the most massive company in American history, is a department of the United States Department of Agriculture which was established in 1905. The Forest Service supervises the public lands in forests and on the expanses of pastures and grasslands, which cover an area of 193 million acres.

      This story dating back to 1950 can serve as a living embodiment and a symbol of the organization.

      On a fine spring day in the mountains of New Mexico clouds of smoke rising above the forest were noticed from the fire watchtower. A strong wind was fanning the fire and it spread fast. All who could, starting from security servicemen and finishing with local residents were taking part in extinguishing the fire.

      Suddenly, the firefighters saw a small bear cub. They decided to leave it alone, because they feared the mother-bear would come soon.

      A few hours later the fire was extinguished. The local residents and the firefighters found the cub alone again. He was hiding in the wide hollow of a tree. His paws were bleeding from burns.

      Soon this story was leaked to the press. People started writing letters to the Department to find out how the bear feels. Soon he was transferred to the National Zoo in Washington and became a living symbol of the National Society for the Protection of Nature from the fires.скачать dle 10.5фильмы бесплатно
