Fire Captain Tom Worton thanked for 35 years service

“He instituted a $5 penalty to the “Dirty Bird” aka “KFC” fund for those who don’t participate in the mandatory gym workout,” she read. “His crew notes that although Tom exhibits an honest and sincere ambition to become a gym rat, he is the highest contributor to the “Dirty Bird’ fund, and may actually be self-sustaining his own KFC addiction.” 

Jokes aside, Captain Worton is considered a confident decision maker and successful leader, who works hard to mentor younger members of the fire department. 

Worton was hired as a probationary firefighter shortly after graduating high school, and has gone on to complete hundreds of courses and receive several other awards and certifications.
