Fire fighters, emergency personnel helped save Como plant

On December, 19 we had a fire at our facility Tier Rack Corporation in Como.    I, as well as all the employees, would like to give a great amount of thanks to the members of the Como Volunteer Fire Department, the Sardis Fire Department and the Chief of Police in Como.   

Because of your quick response to our 911 fire call our plant was saved from major damage.    Chief of Police Fred Boskey, fire fighters Peter, Dennis, and Sammy of Como as well as the members of the Sardis Fire department that responded to our call, I want you to know that “Thank you” just doesn’t seem like enough for what you did.   

I would also like to thank all of our employees for your quick response in all efforts to try and maintain control before the fire departments arrived.

A special thanks to my office manager Christy Colley for her cool level headed handling of employee evacuation and for maintaining control of the entire situation.    It was a combination of all efforts that kept our facility from being consumed by the fire.   God blessed us with no injuries and minimal damage to the structure.    I would like to give great thanks to employees Phil Russell and Tyrus Bradford for staying late to help clean up and get our facility ready to continue running production the next morning.

Again, thank you all so very much.
John Day, Como
