Sugar Land Fire - EMS honor their lost Assistant Chief Clay Fenwick
 
Forum Image
 
A year ago yesterday, Sugar Land Fire lost Assistant Chief Clay Fenwick after a 2 year battle with cancer. Chief Fenwick’s passing was the first Line of Duty Death that Sugar Land had ever faced. Chief Fenwick served the City of Sugar Land for over 28 years and held every rank in the fire department throughout his career, including Interim Fire Chief.
 
One of the last projects Chief Fenwick was diligently working on was our Firefighter Cancer Prevention Initiative to help prevent other firefighters from contracting cancer within their job duties. He was an advocate for our exhaust extraction system that filters and routes apparatus exhaust out of the fire station bays, preventing the buildup of carcinogens within the bays firefighters spend time in. These are systems that we have in place in every fire station. He also advocated for a second set of firefighter gear so that as soon as one was used in a carcinogenic environment, firefighters would be able to move into clean gear and not have to continue to wear soiled gear. In 2020, all of Sugar Land firefighters were issued that second set of gear!
 
This year, Chief Fenwick will be honored during National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend in Emmitsburg, Maryland; due to the pandemic – this will now be a virtual celebration honoring America’s fallen firefighters on October 4th that all will be able to view.
 
Please keep his wife Meledy and daughters Malorie and Cayla, along with the rest of the Fenwick family in your prayers as they move through the anniversary of his passing.
