A Message from our President, Dan Key

"All members of the GCFFA have just gone through what will probably wind up being the most costly natural disaster in US history.  All of you have performed heroically in the most extensive and destructive flooding any of us have ever seen.  I cannot express to you how proud I am of each member of each fire department in our association.  You are all true heroes!  I know many of you lost your homes or suffered significant flood damage.  We are working to obtain help for those who had damage and will reach out to you shortly.  I am asking all of the departments please forward to me lists of members who need assistance.
Having said this I find it is necessary to postpone the Sept meeting for 1 week to Sept. 14.  I am asking for another week to allow everyone to get settled a little.  I feel that it is important that the association meet to get a sense of what damage has been done and what assistance is needed.  This will also give us a little morale boost by visiting with friends from across the county just to make sure they are OK.  Our new station in Friendswood passed the test with flying colors (the old station got beaten up a little).
I look forward to seeing everyone on the 14th in Friendswood!"
Dan

WE ARE HAVING TO DELAY ONE MORE WEEK FOR COUNTY MEETING.  OUR NEW MEETING IS SEPTEMBER 21, 2017
ALWAYS CHECK UPCOMING TRAINING!
HURRICANE HARVEY IS GONE.... But the disaster left behind remains.
Many people have suffered great losses in Galveston County, even our own Firefighters/First Responders.  Please reach out to someone for help or email allison@fireadministrativeservices.com if you cannot find what you need.  There are many places set up for essential supplies for the community, so please reach out for assistance.   If you have any supplies to donate, please drop them off at any Fire Station or local church.  FIREFIGHTERS.....please get your tetanus shots at CVS in your area.  ID required for free shots.  Houston Firemen, go to any Kelsey Seybold for your tetanus shots.  Stay protected so we can keep protecting.
