Guice remembered for service
Wade Guice, who saw the Mississippi Gulf Coast through Hurricane Camille in 1969 and fostered public awareness of the need to evacuate when a hurricane threatens, was recently honored when his is the first name to be placed on a wall of remembrance for civil defense leaders.
Guice was Harrison County’s Civil Defense director for 35 years. He died in September 1996.
Guice was honored Aug. 25 during a ceremony at the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency’s headquarters in Pearl.
