racers Racers Roll In 25th Annual Soap Box DerbyThe 25th annual Deborah Washington Memorial Soap Box Derby was a success, with more than 30 competitors speeding across the finish line during the daylong event.

The race, held April 29 in Moss Point, was sponsored by the Chevron Black Employee Network (BEN) and Moss Point Active Citizens (MPAC). The Chevron Enabled and PRIDE Networks also supported the event.

Originally known as the Magnolia State Soap Box Derby, the event’s name was changed to honor Deborah Washington after she lost her battle with breast cancer. Washington started the event in 1992, and was a beloved Refinery employee known for her active community involvement.

The Derby draws participants from across the Southeast and is open to children between the ages of 7 and 21 who build their cars from kits. There are four divisions, which also includes the Super Kids division for special needs children.

Winners of all four Moss Point divisions advance to the compete in the All- American Soap Box Championship in Akron, Ohio.

More than 30 Refinery volunteers contributed to the success of the event by keeping the official heat times, hauling the derby cars from the finish line back to the start, swapping car wheels after each race, positioning the cars in the staging area, and even handing out bottled water.

Refinery Offers Training for Volunteer Firefighters

More than 50 local volunteer firefighters from (17) different fire departments attended the free annual training event hosted by the Pascagoula Refinery Plant Protection Department in April.

Firefighters who attended were able to practice dowsing flames at several of the fire training ground’s props, including the tanker truck and pump props. They also honed their search and rescue skills by navigating the smokehouse, which simulates conditions in a house fire, and received hands-on training using the Jaws of Life for rescuing victims from vehicles. There was also a presentation put on by Blossman Gas on how to properly take care of propane tank leaks and fires. The firefighters also received training on the use of firefighting foam.

Several vendors supported the training event, including ABC Recycle, Emergency Equipment Professionals, ORR Safety, Blossman Gas, Sunbelt Fire, Akron Brass, and Forts Lake Fire Department.

Also, a special thanks goes to training organizer Teddy Riley, and all of the Plant Protection and Emergency Response Team members who assisted with the event.
