Captain Clark Camping was born in Las Vegas in 1970,. Back then the city had a population of 125,000 people, it now has over 2.2 million. Clark started in the construction industry like many of his generation before joining the fire service in 1998. For the last two years he's been of Firestation 11 on Las Vegas Boulevard - one of the busiest stations in the United States. With Las Vegas being a 24 hour city, they run anywhere between 20-50 calls every single day, responding to chemical incidents, motor crashes, auto-verses pedestrian calls, as well as fires. Mandalay Bay, Tropicana, New York New York and the MGM hotels are all on their patch and thus every morning the firefighters are expected to go to the Mandalay Bay hotel and run the steps of it's 60 floors, 3 times, so that they are fit enough should they have to do it in an emergency. Some of the hotels have 5000 employees and around 15,000 visitors inside the hotel at any one time.
