On Tuesday January 28th at approximately 3pm, Sunstates Security officer Dorian Williams was on post at the control center for the Telfair Museums in Savannah GA. When he noticed on one of the monitors that a fire had started outside the dock door where the trash receptacles are stored. He instructed another officer to call 911 and he secured a fire extinguisher and went to the scene of the fire. Although the fire had spread quickly, due to his quick response Officer Williams was able to douse the fire with the fire extinguisher. The fire department did respond and verified that the fire was in fact out. The cause of the fire was a cigarette. Part of the training curriculum for Sunstates Security at the Telfair Museum includes Fire extinguisher training. “We were very happy with the officer’s response, that fire could have been very serious”, stated William Forrester, Director of Operation for The Telfair Museums.
IFCPP extends our praise to officer Williams and Sunstates Security for a job well done!
