    Default Houston FD

    I am one of a group of firefighters waiting to ship out to Iraq and we've been processing here in Houston before we go. We have visited a couple of the houses around the GW Bush Intercontinental and I would like to thank the Houston fire Department for thier graciousness and the welcome they have given us.

    Truly a class bunch of guys--thanks!

    Thumbs up Houston's Hospitality

    I have had the opportunity to meet and ride along with fellow firefighters from Houston. Their combination of Southern Hospitality and treating a brother firefighter right is outstanding...especially Station 68 "A."

    Stay safe and come home soon...

    Thumbs up

    You were very fortunate indeed to go into 68's. Before I committted career suicide and came back home to the DC area, I worked there a handfull of times on debit day and enjoyed every single shift.

    As a matter of fact, here is a link to their website: http://www.houstonfirefighter.com/68

    Jatkins, as a member of the Houston Fire Department, no problem. You guys deserve it. Be safe and come visit again. 68 "A" will buy dinner for you. Thanks for everything you guys do.

    Lincoln, is that you? LOL. As a member of 68 "A", anytime your down let us know. Your always welcome.

    Kobersteen, did you work for Fairfax County, then come to HFD, and then go back to Fairfax County? I think I heard the story, if my memory serves me. LOL. Good luck up there brother.

    Stay low and move it in.

    I was a volunteer with Fairfax County, got hired by HFD, had a baby and felt homestrings pulling us back to the DC area. I'm now paid in Fairfax County.

    I'm certian that there is another story floating around, but rest assured my leaving had nothing to do with a certian rat bastard. He is a ticking time bomb. He has blown before and he will blow again. Hopefully he won't take others with him next time.

    Ok, so I did hear the right story. LOL. No matter, good luck in Fairfax County. Maybe when I am up there in the next month or so, you can arrange a ride-a-long with a busy company for me.

    Stay low and move it in.

    Those of you in the Houston area should go check out the brothers at Station 7. I went down there a few years ago and their crew is a class act. The old 7 isn't far away, and that's the HFD museum now.
