Check Out The CrossFit Event On May 10th!

May 31st, 2013 was the most devastating and deadly fire in Houston Fire Department history. A 5-alarm motel fire claimed the lives of four Houston firefighters and injured 14 others. Three of the injured firefighters sustained serious long-term injuries. Anthony Livesay and Robert Yarbrough had months of recovery at home and multiple surgeries. The third, Captain William Dowling, suffered crushing injuries and burns that required both legs to be amputated. Bill has been through countless surgeries and dialysis to aid his body in healing during his six months of hospitalization. In November, he was released to begin his rehabilitation and therapy at home but has had several hospital visits since. Please keep Iron Bill and the entire Dowling Family in your prayers.

A group of firefighters decided to establish a non-profit organization called “Firefighters Helping Firefighters” whose goal is to financially assist injured firefighters and their families who are burdened with these issues and obstacles. This may include medical expenses, services needed while hospitalized (food, hotel, home maintenance), retrofitting of home for handicap accessibility, in-home care, living expenses, etc.
