Meet Sam was a 1978 Wiltshire County Council publication.

Based on the words of Divisional Officer Kinsey, supported by the cartoons of Leading Fireman Betts, the publication is a brief good humoured but instructive booklet written in the main for the benefit of inexperienced retained Leading Firemen. Basic application of the mnemonic SAM - survey, action, message, is the crux of the publication.

The copy from which the images below were scanned was once the property of former Ryde Station Officer the late and much admired Jack Southcott. What follows is the unaltered publication as available in the late 1970's.
