Ron White Fire Training Center

Posted on January 6, 2016 at 9:47 AM by Darren Musselwhite

The City of Southaven passed a resolution last night to honor our retiring Fire Chief Ron White for his outstanding service and dedication to our City by renaming the Fire Training Center as the Ron White Fire Training Center.  Chief White began his service to the City in 1979, served as Deputy Fire Chief since 1985, and Fire Chief since 2010.  He was instrumental in the creation and construction of the training center.

Ron White is one of the finest examples of dedication and commitment our City has ever known.  He has served our Fire Department since its inception and given a large part of his life protecting the citizens of Southaven.  It's obvious that he loves this City and put his heart into every effort to make Southaven a model for other departments to follow.  He always placed his organization's needs above his own, and even with his departure, has shied away from personal recognition.  With his leadership, standards have been set that will benefit our Fire Department and City for many years to come.  We are very thankful for his service and will miss him, but wish him well with the next chapter of his life.
