"The safety of our employees, neighbors and the community is our highest priority," said Nick Crosby, site manager for the Institute site.

A former paramedic and volunteer firefighter, Jones has served as a member of multiple mutual aid organizations. He currently is a guest instructor at Texas A&M's well-known Fire & Hazmat schools.

"We are very pleased to welcome Doug to the Institute site family," said Crosby. "We look forward to his contribution toward helping to ensure the safety of our site and the community."
