VIDEO: Volunteer firefighters were focused as they fought furious flames at the Chevron Pascagoula Refinery’s volunteer firefighter training.
Nicole Walters and John Ford with the East Jackson Volunteer Fire Department said they came to the training to become more prepared.
“We’re used to interior firefighting, and this right here is something different, something we’re looking forward to. Any kind of fire training we look forward to, especially as volunteers. We try to soak it up as much as we can,” Ford said.
Officials said the training included vehicle extraction, smoke house rescue training and putting out gas pump and fuel tank flames. Emergency Services Manager Kaci Diantoniis said the company is happy offer the free, specialized training.
