100 Club: Helping Firefighters
April 21, 2009

The 100 Club was established in Houston, Texas in 1953. The organization began when 100 men, each contributing $100, wanted to help the families of Houston Police Officers who were killed in the line of duty. In October 2001, The 100 Club reached another milestone in its history by providing benefits to the dependents of Firefighters killed in the line of duty.

On Easter weekend, two Houston firefighters did not make it out of a burning home. The stories of Captain James Harlow and Firefighter Damien Hobbs can be found on a facebook page set up in their honor. Your donations of $99,500, collected on April 17th, went to help their families. KPRC was proud to team up with the 100 Club once again to make a difference. Our condolences go out to the Harlow and Hobbs’ families.

The continued growth of The 100 Club is only possible through its members and donations made from the community. Your membership helps The 100 Club continue to support the Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters that protect you.

Fire Station 8 Visit
March 10, 2009

I visited Fire Station 8 (downtown) the other day. We were putting together a story about how our fire stations are “Going Green.” The pressure is on and our city is trying to catch up with ways to help the environment. Anchor, Rachel McNeill ended up reporting on the story. Go to our HOME page, scroll to the bottom and click on right corner entitled VIDEO, search for FIRE to see the entire story.
