HFD Station 6

HFD Station 6 "offical" Face book page The fire station actually sat on what is known as Bagby Street today. Mechanic #6 was made up of men who were just that-mechanics.

History of Fire Station 6

Mechanic #6 company was organized in 1873 and was located at the juncture of Washington and Preston Streets which is now just east of the central post office. They were known for two things: they loved to fight fire but they also loved to have fistfights, especially with the men from Stonewall #3. This competition produced a tradition of skullduggery which lasts right o

n into the millennium of today. Mechanic #6 was located at the intersections of Washington and Preston 1895, 1903 at Washington and Ash Place, 1931 at Henderson and Decatur, and in 1987 relocated at Washington and Lakin

I started this page years back. I have since promoted to Captain and I am now at a new station, however; I am still one of the administrqtors for this page. I'm constantly receiving messages on what people can do to help. First, if it is not safe for you to get out, PLEASE stay home because we do not need any more people to rescue. Our guys have worked long hours (some 3 days straight) with no releif crews.The city has made attempts to provide food, but their first priority is the victim's right now. If you feel compelled to bring food to first responders and Volunteers that are assisting in the rescue efforts, then do so. Listed below are a few of our command posts with multiple agencies that are staged from across the state and country. Once again please do not risk your safety!!! God Bless Texas!!

TBT..little house fire off lubbck in 2008


Station 6 has had many calls about our little dog Miley for her safety and a promise to the previous owner, we have decided to use Southern Comfort Animal Rescue in Santa Fe Texas to be certain Miley gets a great home. Please go to their web site and fill out the adaption paperwork!
Once again Houston you where there for your Fire Department!
Thank You


On behalf of station 6,a big THANK YOU to everyone!! We have been contacted by a pet adoption agency. We feel this will be the best course of action for Miley as they will be better suited at matching her up with the perfect family!


Help needs a home! The Houston Fire Department Station 6 responded to a call last night on 1-10 near Heights Blvd. Upon arrival they found an elderly gentleman whose pacemaker was shorting out and the gentleman was having some serious health issues. However the man was worried more about his little dog than himself. Engine 6-A assured the man that HFD would take care of him and his dog and not to worry we were here to help! Today unfortunately the gentleman called advising me his health was not good and his only family was a brother in Dallas and is unable to locate him. He asked me to find a shelter that would take care of his dog. I assure the gentleman his dog would not go to a shelter and the members assigned to station 6 will find his dog a good home and will let him know the outcome. HFD does not allow pets in its Fire Stations we really need a good home for this little K-9 If you know of someone who can give him a good home please call Station 6 713.864.8990 It is a small female (Terrier - Chihuahua mix) who is house trained appears in good health up to date on rabies-she is very sweet!
