In Clayton’s own words:

“The greatest assets I brought to the fire service are enthusiasm, a high energy level and capacity for work. I possess dedication and sincerity of conviction to make the fire service as effective and proficient as it can be. The strongest single skill I possess is in dealing with people. The strength and effectiveness of any organization can be directly traced to the way the members are allowed ownership and participation in department goals and projects. I believe my time in the fire service has given me a wealth of valuable experience".

Clayton wanted us all to know he loved being a firefighter and he loved Tina with all his heart!
