The district has installed new and upgraded fire alarm systems throughout all schools in the Poplarville School District. Ben Whatley, Network Manager of the Poplarville School District's IT department (PSD-IT), headed up the massive project and worked closely with Poplarville Fire Chief, Jonathan Head, to focus on student, faculty, and community safety. 
"It was well worth the time and effort to keep kids safe in the district," Whatley stated looking back over the project. "Fire Chief Head was right there with us from the beginning. We'd like to thank him so much for all the time he put into this project over the summer."
All schools have drilled for fire emergencies since the beginning of the school year. All staff, students, and visitors participated in campus drills. System checks are also monitored during the drills by Whatley, SRO Al Tynes, PSD officer Joe Smith, and each school's administrators. The new system is monitored 24/7.
