So today Friday, April 16 All of the members of the D shift showed up to cover the apparatus at their station. They were repaid by having one of their apparatus put out of service “browned out” and their members scattered in the wind to different crews and stations. This is becoming a huge problem- this is what happens when they keep having firefighters leave to departments that don’t punish them day in and day out and treat them like 3rd class citizens....

Laid to rest a good man, captain, and friend today

Donald Clark Stamps
December 25, 1963 – March 25, 2021

Donald Clark Stamps was born in Texas City, Texas on Christmas Day in 1963. The son of Pat and Ralph Stamps, Don became an extraordinary, beloved family member, firefighter and friend.

Don’s survivors include daughters Savanna Stamps and Paige Stamps; brother and sister-in-law Rai and Anna Stamps; nieces Fallon Stamps Benavides, Meghan Stamps, Katrin Stamps, Victoria Stamps, and Heidi Thompson; and numerous relatives and friends. He was predeceased by his parents and brother R. Matt Stamps.

After growing up in Texas City and Jasper, Texas, Don graduated from Jasper High School in 1981. His calling to the fire service came early. At 17, he pulled up to a brushfire and rushed to help firefighters control the blaze at Lake Sam Rayburn. He soon became a professional firefighter. After service in fire departments in Victoria and The Woodlands, Don joined the Houston Fire Department. He was a graduate of HFD Academy Class 1993/A. Rising to the rank of captain, his HFD assignments through the years included Stations 19, 45, 51, 105 and, most recently, 104. He also served as an active captain in the Champions Fire Department, after starting as a volunteer. As a member of the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association, Don advocated for firefighter retirement security in Houston and at the Texas state capitol. He fought for what he believed in: fairness for his sisters and brothers in the fire service.

Most of all, Don was loyal and giving. He sometimes went without to provide for others. When his nieces lost their father, Don lovingly stepped up to help. They formed lifelong bonds. Whether covering friends’ shifts at the fire station or helping with remodeling or storm-damage projects, Don could be counted on. But his giving nature went beyond family and friends. He once organized a fundraiser for a needy citizen he had met while ordering breakfast at a Chick-fil-A restaurant.

In his downtime, Don enjoyed motorcycle rides, camping and hiking around Texas, the gun range, drumming, jet-skiing, his nieces’ dogs – Trooper, Taylor, Ginny, Milo, and Hamm – and Wednesday night sushi dinners with family. Those dinners included many laughs, some occasional dark humor, and running jokes that have endured for many years. Don’s wonderful sense of humor will be remembered.

The Stamps family is grateful for the support of the HFD Family, the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association, the Champions Fire Department, and Dr. Jessica Stark and the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center staff.

Firefighters respond to several fires across Houston area as power outages continue

Three most trying days of my career. Never burned so many structures down because we didn’t have water. Passing up fires to respond to other fires. We’ll also probably never hear how many carbon monoxide deaths there really were because mayor’s office will never put the real numbers out. Total and absolute failure. Houston we were absolutely not prepared. People couldn’t get transported by ambulance because we had zero ambulances available. We had people calling back 24 hrs later asking for an ambulance. My heart breaks for all the people who were just trying to stay warm. I worked 5 days during Harvey and this felt a lot worse.

Thank you to all my brothers and sister firefighters that showed up ... most of us left our families and houses with no power, no water and busted pipes to come in with no water at station and a never ending shift. Hard to describe the heart of a Houston firefighter...

Local firefighters have been responding to several home and apartment fires as millions go without electricity and heat for days.

For all of us, with being very understaffed, overworked and not feeling appreciated by our city leaders - here are some wonderful words from the people we serve. We appreciate you more than you know and kind words and recognition go a very long way in these trying times. For all my fellow brother and sister firefighters - this right here is why we show up to work. Keep up the good work!

Deputy Chief of Surgery, thanks @HoustonFire crew for...”outstanding service”. HFD crews are examples of individuals who come to work and make HFD the professional organization it is.

From Andy Williamson: “On Christmas Eve 2020, at 2222 hours, Engine 5 delivered a healthy baby girl at the couple’s home that was supposed to be a C-section while waiting on Ambulance 4. Despite everything, there are still cool things that happen at this job. Picture posted with permission of family of course.”

The men and woman of Station 69 would like to wish you all a Blessed and safe Christmas. We would like to thank all of you that have been there for us. We have some great neighbors that have been very gracious with us through this very crazy year. We proudly continue to serve you and pray for a great 2021 for everyone! 🎄🎁✝️

Add to no more service of Tower 69 in this arrea. You no longer have a Ladder truck covering Walnut Bend and surrounding area. Thanks HFD for screwing people who show up to work, and on Christmas Eve at that. T-69 had all its members, but they sent it to station 31. I guess they think that area is more important than this area, even though we have a lot more high rises and much bigger houses. Whoever decided this was a good idea is not very bright.

There are only about 5 Towers in covering this city, there is a reason why they are located where they are. Why ever would you send it to replace a regular ladder truck is ridiculous.

The longer the mayor and city council insist on suing the firefighters and not honoring collective bargaining and prop b, the more firefighters leave, the worse the problem gets, and the more you hurt the citizens of Houston that pay your salary, and to whom you are accountable to.

As you all know recently Honduras was hit by hurricane ETA. That same area is about to be hit by Cat 5 hurricane Iota. We are collecting supplies this Friday the 19th through Sunday 21st. These much needed supplies will help our sister Honduras fire departments as well as the many families devastated by these hurricanes. If you would like to help us the needed items are: clothes, shoes, diapers, formula, cleaning supplies, hygiene products, hand sanitizers, masks, gloves, heavy duty plastic bags and household items. We appreciate any help with this. Thank you!
