cancer house getting startedFor many years, the Houston Fire Department has served its citizens with the highest level of integrity, compassion, and care. Now, the firefighters of Houston have decided to answer another call, going above and beyond in order to help their brother and sister firefighters across the nation, while continuing to provide a high level of service to Houston's citizens. To that end, the Society of Houston Latino Fire Fighters (SHLFF) purchased Old Historical Fire Station 27, with the goal of renovating the facility into apartment units for firefighters and their families during extended treatments in Houston's medical center.
