Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Lt Eric Hill and FF Matt Dawson of Lubbock Professional Firefighters Association and officer Nicholas Reyna of Lubbock Professional Police Association. Definitely a hard time for the city of Lubbock.

Official statement from Lubbock Professional Firefighters 972. As an organization our hearts go out to all of our members, family, friends, the citizens of Lubbock, and the Lubbock Police Department as two of our brother firefighters and an LPD Officer were involved in a tragic accident today. LT Eric Hill was pronounced deceased at University Medical Center and FF Matt Dawson is currently in critical condition at University Medical Center as well. Additionally, Officer Nicholas Reyna with LPD was involved and pronounced deceased on scene. These first responders are heroes that were doing their job and other first responders on scene immediately began medical interventions in hazardous conditions without regard for their own safety in an effort to save the three that were injured. Please keep all area first responders in your thoughts and prayers as they will honor these three heroes by continuing to do their job to protect our community. More information on the status of FF Matt Dawson and the memorial service for Lt Eric Hill will be released as available.

We appreciate our brothers and sisters in blue!

Fort Worth firefighter seriously hurt at rollover crash scene

Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured firefighter and we are hoping for a quick recovery. Please remember to give firefighters and fire trucks plenty of room when working an incident. If you must drive around the scene, do so SLOWLY and CAUTIOUSLY! And it may be tempting to check out the emergency scene or take pictures as you pass, but please keep your focus on driving. (These tips are general reminders and not necessarily related to any of the details from this morning's accident)

A Fort Worth firefighter who was responding to a rollover crash was hit by a car and seriously injured.

I want to tell all in Local 440 past and present Happy Christmas...
I found this pic of my mother and a neighbor at Station 26 probably in the 1980’s. This pic also was in the FW Star Telegram. These ladies brought fresh baked goodies often to 26. I remember as a kid when 26 came to our home for a cook out. Engine and all. Us kids thought we had hit the jackpot with Firefighters at our home. My mom has passed but 26 was so good to her as she got older and would fall. They were always there. She lived at Hulen and Trail Lake.

This past Monday, my brother, Joseph Broussard, passed away from Lymphoma. Even though his last name is different he was my brother and this loss has cut me to the core. Between all of my family, we are not going to able to produce the money needed to bury him properly. My sister is trying to raise the money as is a friend of our family. My sister know I have friends on the department and has asked me to seek your help. My sister's name is Aimee Ratliff, like me, she has a page so anyone of you can contact here about wanting to donate. I appreciate you taking the time to read this.
I have been involved in tuition issues surrounding our exemptions since 2004. If any of your FFs are given problems by the colleges, have them contact me. I think I have a firm grasp of the education code.
The MPA program at UT Arlington is now covered under the FF tuition exemption mentioned in TEC 54.353
