Business & Biscuits Set For Thursday Morning

The Mount Olive Chamber of Commerce and University of Mount Olive Tillman School of Business have partnered to offer Biscuits & Business, business seminars that focus on educational or business topics. The next Biscuits & Business will be held on Thursday, February 27 from 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. in the JD Evans room at Steele Memorial Library (119 W. Main Street, Mount Olive). The public is invited to attend. Free biscuits will be provided to all who attend.

On February 27, the North Carolina Pickle Festival Safety Committee will present an update on safety standards that we will be implemented at the 2020 festival. Due to changes in insurance and regulations, the North Carolina Pickle Festival executive committee partnered with the Mount Olive Police Department, Mount Olive Fire Department and Wayne County Emergency Management Center to revise their safety plan for the festival. This plan will address a variety of emergency situations.

The revised incident action plan includes a command center, crowd control managers, public announcement system, emergency locations and controlled entry and exit points. Lynn Williams, NC Pickle Festival public relations chairperson, stated, “We are excited about our new event emergency action plan. It will benefit the North Carolina Pickle Festival and the Town of Mount Olive and guide us in identifying risks or potential risks, implementing measures to be put in place for the protection and well-being of the public and participants attending our festival, reducing the risk of loss of life and property damage resulting from an emergency and identifying individuals, groups and organizations roles and responsibilities.”

Members of the North Carolina Pickle Festival executive committee, Mount Olive Fire Department, Mount Olive Police Department and Wayne County Emergency Management Center will share information about the plan at the Biscuits & Business seminar.
