Clayton Fire Department's Meet Us Monthly Feature - January 2024

Interim Fire Captain Jordan Craven

Happy New Year! Starting off our first #MeetUsMonthy in 2024 is Interim Fire Captain Jordan Craven.

Craven is celebrating two years with the Clayton Fire Department, joining the team in January 2022. His daily tasks consist of responding to calls, managing a three-person engine company, training, and staying prepared. 

“We spend a lot of our down time preparing for whatever we go to, so there’s a lot of time put in behind the scenes for the emergencies that we’re responding to.”

With more than 15 years in fire service, Craven says he was drawn to the profession at a young age. He remembers getting involved with volunteer fire and then realizing his calling.

Craven has a two-year-degree in fire protection technology and additional certifications to continue his education. After working for the city of Kingston, he is excited to serve the Town of Clayton and its residents. 

“I love that the fire department and town are very friendly. They look out for us. Everybody looks out for each other. That makes a big difference coming into work, feeling like the people here care about you.”

Currently, Craven lives in Lenoir County, North Carolina. He enjoys spending time with his family, including his three-year-old son.
