Chacon graduates from NFPA program


Marcos Chacon, a member of Firefighter Class 202 of the Mississippi State Fire Academy and the Pass Christian Fire Department, recently graduated from the Academy’s intense seven-week National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1001 Firefighter I-II course held at the Mississippi State Fire Academy in Jackson.  

The course included online, classroom and hands-on instruction in the areas of fire behavior, fire suppression, rescue, incident command, hazardous materials and other fire-related topics.

The Mississippi State Fire Academy is a division of the Mississippi Insurance Department. State Fire Marshal Mike Chaney and Academy Executive Director Terry Wages believe these firefighters will be an asset to the fire departments they represent.

“We are excited for them to go and serve their community,” said Wages.
