Get To Know Doug Gorman of Booth Fire & Safety! Business Leader, Humanitarian and Local Source For Keeping You, Your Family and Your Business Safe.

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Thursday, August 21st, 2014 8:00 AM CST

We’re getting to know the Owners, Managers and Artisans of some of our great partners. Today we speak with Doug Gorman, President, of Booth Fire and Safety:

1. Tell us a little about you as a person. Where are you from, what are your hobbies and where did you start your career that led to operating Booth Fire and Safety? 

My Father was in Manufacturing management so we moved with promotions quite a bit.  I was born in Muskegon Michigan and moved to Severna Park MD when I was 5.  My Father was transferred to Hopkinsville KY for Ebonite Bowling Balls when I was 13.  No culture shock there……..  I attended WKU to play Soccer and played for 4 years graduating in 1986.  I immediately went into sales.  I spent 7 years with Motorola before meeting B.J. Booth, the founder of Booth Fire and Safety.  In 1995, he offered a position of General Manager and in 1999 I purchased the company.

2. What is your earliest memory of your work, what got you interested in it?

The first year at Booth was a struggle and a steep learning curve.  I remember vividly selling a CO2 fire suppression system to a factory.  The sale was one of the biggest the company had ever had.  6 months later the factory had a fire and the system extinguished the fire.  Needless to say , the customer has been extremely loyal to us.  That desire to save lives and property and help solve problems has kept me motivated.

3. What is your favorite thing you sale?

Our main product is Fire Extinguishers.  We sell thousands per year, but I always think this one simple item can save a life and we never take that for granted.

4. Who are your influences in life and your work? 

My Father instilled a work ethic in me that I appreciate greatly.  I think some great customer service skills were learned from my Mother.  I’ve got 5 brothers and 2 sisters and that in itself taught teamwork, perseverance, consequences for actions and support and love.

5. If you had to choose a last meal, what would you eat? 

My last meal would probably be 2 hamburgers and a bowl of chili from Ferrell’s hamburgers in Hopkinsville.

6. How important is local business collaboration to you? 

I think one of the greatest things about this town is the business community and how involved many of them are with each other.  I appreciate collaborating with various businesses to help improve my business.  We’ve been blessed to have earned the clientele that we have and we are always going out of our way to work with them in any way that would be mutually beneficial.

7. What event in Bowling Green (or Charity) are you involved with? 

I’ve been a member of the Kiwanis Club of Bowling Green for over 20 years.  Each year we organize the BB & T All American Soap box derby as well as  the Citizens First Thunderfest celebration of Independence Day.  100% of our donations go to fund children’s charities.

8. What do you see for the future of your business in Bowling Green and serving South Central Kentucky? 

We’re exttemely optimistic about the future of our business.  Bowling Green continues to grow and that is good for everyone’s business.  There will be extreme challenges to stay in business from health care for employees to a skilled work force.  One thing about Bowling Green, small business has always been the backbone of our community and will continue to be into the future.

9. What other locally owned businesses in town do you enjoy shopping, eating or patronizing? 

As for dining out, we love Mariah’s, Rafferty’s, Double Dogs, Montana Grille, 440 Main and Cambridge Market.  We also love Brickyard Café and Mellow Mushroom.  I think you can tell the biggest difference when you go to a locally owned restaurant and what you get for your dollar.  We have truly enjoyed going to Home Café as well.  Any time you see young entrepreneurs risking their livelihood with the American dream, I think you should support them.

If you have a business or organization that needs help to insure the safety of the people and building itself or just to keep them cool in the warm summer months, your local choice is Booth Fire and Safety. 538 State Street Bowling Green. Call them at 270.781.3330 or check their website out and fan them on facebook.

Sunburst Youth Theatre presents: Pride and Prejudice Starts Tomorrow through Sunday!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 2:00 PM CST

Marriage is an inevitable fact of life for the five Bennet sisters — Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty, and Lydia. With the family estate entailed away to their closest male cousin, their only hope to advance in life is to find a rich and single man — and one has just arrived in the form of the very handsome and very well-off Charles Bingley. The kindhearted and beautiful Jane seems poised to make a match, but must contend with her overly zealous mother, his snobbish sister, and a slippery social ladder. And when Bingley’s taciturn friend Fitzwilliam Darcy shows an interest in the opinionated and spirited Elizabeth, the situation becomes more complicated than either of them expect. The fire and wit of Jane Austen’s classic 1813 romance shines through in this vibrant new adaptation.
