Fayette Benevolent Society Recognizes Public Safety Leaders

The Fayette Benevolent Society (FBS) recognized Interim County Administrator Jack Krakeel, Interim Director of Public Safety Allen McCullough and Interim Director of Fire Services Tom Bartlett for their service and commitment to public safety. The ceremony occurred at the Historic Train Depot & Welcome Center on March 28 during an informative lunch social.

All departments of public safety employees in Fayette County were represented during the social as Reverend Derek Porter of Brooks First United Methodist Church welcomed the crowd to the awareness campaign program.

“Without the continued support and efforts of Jack, Allen and Tom, the Society would not have been able to financially assist our members in need,” said Captain Mitch Warren, Officer and Fayette County Firefighter. “No public safety employee plans to get hurt but if they should find themselves in that unfortunate predicament, the Society gives them assurance that someone is there caring for them and their family.”

The FBS was founded in 2005 and has more than 147 members. It is a self-funded, member-driven society. The first annual FBS Golf Tournament fundraiser will be held at Fayetteville Golf Club, Wed., May 7 at 12:00 p.m. For golf sponsorship information and more information about FBS, please contact Captain Mitch Warren at 678-794-0635.
