JACKSON, Tenn. — Jackson firemen are working to make fire safety a priority for Hub City residents. Leaders for the Jackson Fire Department, residents and city leaders gathered Friday morning to dedicate a new program starting this summer that helps students learn fire safety. The mobile home will be transformed into a new training site for seniors and second graders. Once the unit is complete, it will be used as a simulator for teaching people how to escape home fires. “Thinking calmly, remaining calm, you get out of a situation much easier than panicking,” said Rico Bryson with the Jackson Fire Department. “We’re trying to give the tools, the training that they need so they can remain calm and get out of the house safely.”
