Yazoo Turns Up The Heat On Fire Safety

Fire Safety & Extinguisher Training at Yazoo Mills

Take a moment and think about your earliest memories of learning about fire safety. The fire drills, field trips to the local station, school assemblies, fun interactive games & contest posters during fire safety week, or perhaps those “Be Cool” videos. Whatever it may be, fire education begins at an early age because it’s so important to be aware of the risks and dangers. 

For Yazoo, educating our employees about fire safety has become essential to our evolving safety culture. More so that we recently looked to our friends at United Hook & Ladder Co. 33 and Hanover Area Volunteer Fire and Rescue to educate over 200 team members on Fire Awareness & Extinguisher Training. This training familiarized our employees with the risks of lithium-ion batteries used in workplace equipment and at-home devices; identifying the different extinguisher classes; how to use a fire extinguisher; and the extreme importance of daily inspections.

We are beyond grateful for all our first responders that proudly serve our communities and are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you to United Hook & Ladder Company 33 & Hanover Area Volunteer Fire and Rescue for visiting us and providing impactful training for our staff. 

Safety first, safety always! We believe in offering diverse training opportunities for our team members that enhance safety awareness and provide a safer work and home environment.
