Houston Fire Station 67

Houston Fire Station 67 City of Houston Fire Department (HFD) is the agency that provides fire protection and emergency medical services for the city of Houston, Texas
(9)

Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States. HFD is responsible for preserving life and property for a population over 2 million in an area totaling 617 square miles. Station 67 sits in the heart of what's commonly known as "Acres Homes" subdivision at West Little York and Willow. It was constructed in 1971. Station 67 was renovated in 2000-01. History of Acres Homes: ACRES HOMES, TEXAS. Acres Homes, once considered the South's largest unincorporated black community, is south of Aldine and ten miles northwest of downtown Houston in Harris County. It developed around the time of World War I, when landholders began selling off homesites in plots big enough to allow small gardens and maintain chickens or farm animals. The town derived its name from the fact that land was sold by the acre and not by the lot. The first settlers came from rural areas, attracted by the community's inexpensive land, low taxes, and the absence of city building standards. Residents dug wells and built sanitary facilities, but conditions in the settlement subsequently declined. When the city of Houston approved a plan to annex the area and install water and sewer lines, Acres Homes was a 12½-square-mile, heavily wooded, dispersed slum settlement without transportation or educational facilities. Though 90 percent of the residents were homeowners, most housing was substandard. In the 1960s congressman and future president George H. W. Bush sponsored a girls' softball team, the Bush All Stars, which played at Carver Park in the community. Acres Homes resident George F. Sampson was involved in a case that charged the Aldine Independent School District with racial discrimination against Sampson's sons. Though Sampson won his case in 1964, the district was not integrated until 1965. In 1970 a group of ministers persuaded the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development to build Lincoln Park, a 264-unit low-income housing project, at Acres Homes. Six years later the development, having fallen into disrepair, was repossessed by HUD. Rehabilitation began in the 1980s, but by then the project was troubled by crime and drug abuse. Lincoln Park reopened in 1986 after a $4.2 million federal investment brought central heat, a day-care center, and other major improvements. The community itself had become a sprawling working-class neighborhood of well-kept brick and frame homes interspersed with abandoned and dilapidated shacks. After November 1987 the War on Drugs Committee organized antidrug parades through the park, sponsored drug-prevention workshops, and encouraged reporting of illegal drug use. In 1989 President Bush and William Bennett returned to participate in events relating to the War on Drugs campaign in an effort to rid the park, renamed Winzer Park, of drug dealers. In 1988 a Citizens Chamber of Commerce was formed to help revive the community and handle growing conflict between local residents and Asian owners, primarily Vietnamese, of the twenty-six businesses that had moved into the community after 1975. - (Texas State Historical Association)

Again, HFD's worsening, but long-predicted staffing shortage has consequences. The Turner Administration is cutting fire service at stations all over the city, including at Stations 34, 55 and 68. COVID-19 is an excuse for, not the cause of HFD's lack of "surge capacity" in the pandemic response. More than 400 HFD firefighters have left for better jobs or retirement in the past year and a half. Firefighters are being mandatorily held over at the stations. Some have worked up to 96 straight hours recently.

House Fire with a mayday from ceiling collapse.
D04, D31, E67, E04, E13, E50, L67, L04, A13, M58 & SF30.
E67 first in crew, separated by ceiling and roof collapse. Mayday was called immediately and repeated multiple times on scene by crews outside. Reaction was fast and smooth and the crews were able to exit through a second story window thanks to a properly placed ladder. Mayday crew had no injuries thank you to the exterior crews and thank you St. Florian.

Thanks to Brian Schrader for the pictures and info.

Harris County don't blow it vote for Tony Buzbee the right opponent. Folks in Kingwood, Bear Creek, Memorial area & other places throughout Houston don't want your wunnerful Mayor to open the flood gates again suggest Dec 14 you folk vote. HOUSTON DO THE RED THING, Check it out “Sly The Mayor Turner” https://youtu.be/RqmZntxqu8w Turning Houston into a 3rd world city Turner hey Mayor what a downright pity. They keep moving in turning this city blue, nothing gets fixed, nothing built new.
To all my Houstonian friends and family, take the time to read this!! Just a little FYI- Mayor Turner & City Council has implemented a new General Order for HFD. Starting Nov 1st, we now have to obtain your insurance information even if you refuse to be transported to the ER by ambulance. Us simply showing up for a medical call or MVA and performing an assessment of the patient will now warrant a possible bill from the city of Houston for our services. Prior Nov 1st- if the patient refused ambulance transport and we just obtained vitals etc, there were no fees involved. Mad yet??? Houstonians can make the difference! It's not just the fireman being effected by this mayor. In the end, it's the citizens who will feel the final nail driven in the coffin, if Turner is re-elected. Day's before & Dec 14th are perfect days to let this guy know you don't agree w/his ways. Step on out and support your firefighters so they can be there for you when you call !!! 😁
