OBITUARIES Commissioner of Insurance - Georgia State Fire Marshal's Office fire safety training trailer is getting a fix up at the Thomson Fire and Rescue headquarters. The fire safety training trailer travels over the state providing children with important information and training on fire safety and weather safety. This unit has been in service for over six years and certain features were becoming worn. James Crawley of the State Fire Marshal's Office and a volunteer with the Thomson Fire Department took on the job of fixing up the interior of the unit for future use. The Thomson Fire Department provided space for the repairs and assisted with the removal of the furniture and equipment. Remnant & Rug Shop of Thomson donated the carpet for the floor. Don Ray an employee of the Remnant & Rug Shop donated the labor to install the carpet. James Crawley removed the old carpet floor covering and repaired several items damaged and worn due to use. Crawley stated, "Thomson Fire Department and local merchants made this project possible. It will benefit hundreds and thousands of children across the State of Georgia." Some of the items repaired on the unit were door hardware replaced, bench seating recovered, carpet replaced, flooring repaired, wall and windows cleaned, latches on cabinets repaired, exterior doors sealed, exterior wall fasteners tighten, and stair rails repaired. The unit has been used in Thomson for safety fairs at Wal-Mart, local elementary schools, and local emergency recognition day. Thanks again to the Swain family, Don Ray for assistance with this project. The project was started on Wednesday and completed on Saturday. Fire safety training trailer gets a facelift in Thomson
