Firefighter of the Month

We are proud to announce that the Pearl Fire Department Firefighter of the Month is Captain James McGraw. James began his career with the Pearl Fire Department on November 20, 2004.

He has amassed over 1000 hours of continuing training from the MS State Fire Academy with the most recent being a new pilot program for Advance EMT where he finished in the top few of his class. James was promoted to Lieutenant on January 12, 2009 and then to Captain on June 24, 2016. Throughout his career with PFD, Captain McGraw has taken it upon himself to help train new firefighters as well as help with the training of new Driver Operators. Captain McGraw has been and will continue to be a vital piece of the puzzle at the Pearl Fire Department. On his days off from PFD, Captain McGraw has also served as a pastor of a local Methodist Church for the last 3 years.
