This DVD Features One Of The First Clips
Advertising Smoke Detectors!

Today nearly every home is equipped with a working fire detector - it's the law in most communities. Yet 50 years ago, fire detectors were a new item on the market and people had to be sold on the idea of using them to protect their families and save lives.

In one of the vintage clips assembled on this DVD you will see how the ADT Alarm Systems did its part to safeguard America's families.

Here is a complete track by track breakdown of exactly what you will receive when you order Fire - Safeguard Your Family today!

Our first clip discusses the benefits and dangers of fire. The many uses (and misuses) of fire are explored in this short. From maintaining a brush fire to getting rid of grass to the gas on your stove, fire has many positive uses. We then get into a somewhat interesting explanation of how fire works, then of course the good stuff, when fire gets out of control.

Story of a Forest Ranger, The

Vision in the Forest
This is the Smokey The Bear clip you have been waiting for! While country music singer Vaughn Monroe camps with his family in a beautiful forest, one of his daughters encounters Smokey in a clearing and has a near-mystical experience that teaches her to respect the danger of forest fire. This is the only video in which Vaughn's entire family appears. The story is corny but it's a nice testament to Vaughn's love of his family.

ADT: When Every Minute Counts
Our last clip is an advertising film about how ADT Alarm Systems secure property, and includes elaborate coverage of alarm and communications technology in the analog era. A fire chief and a police chief do their level best to convince us that we should all protect our businesses with ADT fire and burglar alarm systems, and they do a pretty good job of it, too, addressing all of our possible objections through the voice of the narrator. Police and fire department buffs should enjoy the film.

Running Time:
DVD One: 01:09:13


Following the devastating fires that destroyed Berkeley, and San Francisco, Americans became increasingly cautious about fires - either in the bush or at home. This DVD is a delightful compilation of films that warn Americans about the dangers of fires and also educate them on how to prevent fires.

Produced under such renowned banners as Encyclopeadia Britannica and the U.S Department of Agriculture, the clips use glorious reenactments and thought-provoking discourses to drive home the points that are difficult to miss - that fires are dangerous and that they could be prevented.

Grab this set of DVDs to find out how Fire fighting equipment came to be an essential part of a community’s armory for safeguarding itself.


"I was really fired up by this engrossing set of DVDs, which deal with a very pertinent subject - safety. Understandably people paid little attention to safety measures initially and I admire the persistence of manufacturers in convincing people about the benefits of their products. I am sure a good number of fires were prevented and a lot of lives and property were saved because someone listened to these words of wisdom."
Alex Burns (Fair Field, Texas)

"Here is another great educational gem from my favorite supplier - A2ZCDS. As always the clip selection is thematic, great and edifying. I have a shelf full of their great DVDs already and am delighted to add one more." Lucy Harris (Richmond, Virginia)
