Meet Marc Perry

Here is a guy who is all about volunteering his time to better his community. Marc is a volunteer for the Clayville Fire Department, while he also works full time at Edwards Ambulance.

While in the field, many see Marc as a leader. He often is the go-to guy when mentoring new EMS first responders and anyone else looking to get into his field. Not only is he full of knowledge, but he's also a stand-up guy.

Firefighter Uniform and Boots on Firetruck, ready to go

Marc is always willing to step up to the plate and offer a helping hand. He's willing to attend anyone's medical needs and is there in a second if a child is in danger. You can often catch him volunteering at Sauquoit football games.

Thank you Marc for all that you do. Your support doesn't go unnoticed and your impact is so much bigger than you realize.
