Georgia-Pacific’s Muskogee Mill has presented Chief Derrell R. Jones and the entire Muskogee Fire Department with a $2,000 Georgia-Pacific Bucket Brigade grant to express its gratitude for the support and resilience the department displayed during the mill’s 2019 fire.
“The Muskogee Fire Department’s quick response and heroic actions kept a dangerous situation from tragic results, and words cannot express our appreciation for the support and dedication displayed not only during the fire but as we continue to rebuild our facility,” said Amy Borovich, Muskogee facility manager. “We hope this grant will help fund some of the ongoing efforts of the fire department to keep the Muskogee area safe.”
Immediately following the May 2019 fire, the mill began recovery efforts, united in its commitment to rebuild while continuing operations. With construction nearly complete, now is a natural time for the mill to celebrate and thank the Muskogee community for its support.
