DLA Distribution Albany celebrates employees

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs

Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Albany, Georgia, celebrated employee appreciation day Sept. 12.

The festivities included a picnic as well as a safety related discussion given by Charles Thurmond, inspector, Marine Corps Logistics Base Fire Department. Thurmond shared with the staff his firsthand knowledge of the lifesaving ability of a well maintained fire extinguisher. 

Thurmond stressed the need for fire safety in our professional and personal lives. “Fire safety should be at the forefront of everyone’s mind, because a fire can start at any time of the day or night. What is done in the first few minutes of a fire starting is critical,” said Thurmond.
