Station 16’s very own B shifter Chris Mixon is currently on deployment to california with Houston Fire Departments Wildland Team to help with the extinguishment of the wildland fires in Callifornia. Along with about a 100 other guys from Houston.

Our thoughts and prayers go with our brothers & sisters as they deploy to California to provide assistance and relief. Special thanks to Southwest Airlines for chartering 2 flights to transport all the Firefighters from the Texas region. Be safe out there!!!

Engine 16 received a new manifold with has a 5” Storz to 4- 2 1/2” discharges. It’s called the Town House Lay.

Today, we put it to the test. We maxed out the hydrant and flowed 1330 GPM to the Manifold and dropped our residual to 2 flowing 480 GPM out of the ladder pipe.

From the Manifold
- 50’ of 2 1/2” to a Blitz Fire (500 GPM)
- 200’ of 1 3/4 to a Smooth Bore (210 GPM)
- 100’ of 2 1/2” to a gated Wye with 100’ of 1 3/4 with a fog nozzle (200 GPM)
- 50’ of 3” to a Water Thief with 2- 50’ of 1 3/4” with 2 - Fog Nozzles (400 GPM)

Only modification we made was we put 2 pressure gauges on the #1 and #4 discharges to see what pressure we were have to gate down to.

B shift getting it done

HFD Fire Station 16 on the A shift transported a sweet caring displaced female to the hospital earlier during the week. Pictured here are several B shift personnel from Fire Station 16 who were contacted days later by Memorial Hermann Hospital staff in search for some assistance. Without hesitation the men and women of Fire Station 16 sprung into action with coordinated efforts from the HFD public relations division to assist the homeless lady and Memorial Hermann Hospital. The lady’s wheel chair was being safely stored at a local Walgreens from days prior. HFD E-16 and the HFD public relations van stopped by the Walgreens to pick up her wheel chair to return it to her so when she was discharged from Memorial Herman Hospital she had it readily available. Several hours later, the crew of E-16 spotted her off Westheimer and stopped to check on her to make sure she was staying hydrated and cool. Thank you HFD for sincerely caring for the well being of the constituents of Houston. Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association Houston Fire Station 16

To the guy who was kind enough to chat with me at HEB Dunlavy this morning about the birds and babies trying to cross Shepherd. At rush hour. 12 babies, did I mention 12? You were right! They ARE ducks. They're called black bellied whistling ducks (who knew?) and they nest in the Southhampton/Boulevard Oaks area. The babies must have just hatched. No sign of them on the way back so I hope they found safe harbor in someone's back yard. I'll keep a lookout.
A year ago Sunday I brought my husband home from the hospital after major back surgery and he collapsed on the driveway. A call to 911 and within minutes a bunch of y'all came to our rescue, calmed him, my dad and me and then took us back to Memorial Hermann--this time to the ER. We all thought it was to check on his back, but it turned out that he had more than one pulmonary embolisms in his lungs. If you hadn't been there he would haven't made it to 47. Now he is up to running 3 miles and playing basketball with our 8 year old. THANK YOU!!!
