WATCHMAKING, BOARD OF EXAMINERS IN
the firemanship program. In 1961, more than 7,000 members of
volunteer and paid fire departments received instruction in the
newest techniques through the state board.
  Rehabilitation.  The board's rehabilitation  division   operates
through 8 local offices throughout the state, providing training
and assistance to the handicapped. In 1961, 6,149 cases were
served by the division, of whom 1,521 cases were closed as re-
habilitated. Out of this total, 872 cases involved the mentally ill,
with 219 being rehabilitated; and 370 were mentally retarded
cases, of whom 103 were rehabilitated. The others were physically
handicapped, who needed training, or retraining to help them be-
come useful members of society.
  The division's staff works in 3 areas. First is the actual case
work identifying and helping the handicapped. A second respon-
sibility is the active work co-operating with, and helping co-
ordinate, federal, state, and private agencies in this field. Staff
members are also involved, with other agencies, in the develop-
ment of pilot and experimental programs which give promise of
improving rehabilitation techniques.
  In addition to its work with the handicapped, the rehabilitation
division makes disability freeze determinations involving those
under the Old Age and Survivors Insurance Act (social security)
for the federal government.
