HIREFIRE – The Resource for HIRING Firefighters with businesses
HIREFIRE is the PREMIER listing of Houston Firefighters with their own businesses, trades, services or products.
One of the BEST ways the Greater Houston community can support Houston Firefighters is by hiring them to do work or buy their products. This site enables our Houston Firefighters to share their business info and allows visitors to contact the business directly through this page.

HANGIN’ WITH HEROES – Community Outreach
Our off-duty Houston Firefighters volunteer to visit seriously ill and injured children in the local hospitals and show them firefighting gear and tools and how they are used. This interactive event helps bring smiles to the kids faces and helps them forget the reasons they are in the hospital. Each child becomes an “honorary” firefighter receiving hats, stickers and other goodies. We believe that every child deserves time with a hero.
We have several more projects up our sleeves so keep an eye on this website and follow us on Facebook as we break news.
