On Monday night 25 members of the Clayton Fire Company practiced techniques on how to deploy and move hose lines. Past Chief Jeff Hurlock told the members "if you only work with these hose lines once every few months, you will not become good at it. You need to practice and practice to be good" Past Chief Chief Hurlock had three stations set up with different situations for members to practice deploying and moving hoselines. Just as the class was starting Clayton was dispatched to assist Citizen's Hose of Smyrna with a MVC, however training continued until the two trucks that responded returned. Chief Wes Davis advised that "it is important to practice the little things we do as well as the major things we do. Moving hose is one of the most basic things we do and the better we are the better the alarm is handled. Chief Davis thanked our members for attending training on a hot summer night stating "this just shows the dedication these folks have to the success of the fire company and the protection of our citizens.
