  • Charity Ball to Benefit Firefighters Burned in the Line of Duty

College Station -- The 2014 College Station Fire Fighters Charity Ball will be held Saturday March 29, 2014 at Pebble Creek Country Club in College Station. The proceeds will benefit the Helping Heroes Burn Foundation.

Helping Heroes Burn Foundation was established in 2013 following the Knights of Columbus Hall fire in Bryan, Texas. Money raised from this event will support firefighters and their families during their time of need. Associated costs of burns can include lodging for family, medical expenses, food, and travel.

The event will feature dinner, dancing, and a silent auction. Tickets are $65 for couples and $40 for individuals. Tickets can be purchased at www.local4511.org. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. For more information, contact College Station Professional Firefighters Association President Mike Clements at 303-929-3762.


Thank You to all our 2014 College Station Fire Fighter's Charity Ball Sponsors. This event would not be possible without your generosity.


Bryan Fire Department

Firefighter Memorial

February 15, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CITY OF BRYAN

BRYAN FIRE DEPARTMENT MEMORIAL

February 15 marks one year from the date of the Knights of Columbus Hall fire that claimed the life of two Bryan firefighters and seriously injured two others.  The Bryan Fire Department will hold a memorial service at 4:00 p.m. Saturday, February 15, to commemorate the events of that tragic day.

The public is invited to attend the memorial service, which will be held in front of the Clara B. Mounce library in downtown Bryan.  Following the ceremony, Bryan Fire Department pipes and drums will lead a procession to Murphy’s Law in downtown Bryan.

The memorial service will include comments by Bryan City officials and Bryan Fire Department leadership, presentation of a memorial wreath, and dedication of the memorial wall.   Firefighters Ricky Mantey and Mitch Moran, who suffered serious burns while attempting to rescue one of their own, will participate in the memorial.  The families of Lt. Eric Wallace and Lt. Greg Pickard, who gave their lives in the line of duty, will also be present.

“We felt it was right and appropriate to hold this firefighter memorial service on the one year anniversary of this event which deeply impacted the lives so many in the Fire Department family and the community.  We hope this solemn occasion allows our firefighters, their families and the entire community the opportunity to reflect with pride upon the sacrifice of these brave men and their families, while looking to the future with hope and thanksgiving for the brave individuals who are the Bryan Fire Department.”

Media:  Due to the solemnity of the occasion, we ask that individual interviews not be requested immediately prior to, during or immediately after the ceremony.

Live to bark another day: College Station Firefighters rescue Doberman from house fire (BCS EAGLE)

Zeus was on the living room couch when the fire broke out.

That's where firefighters found the unconscious, adult male Doberman when they entered a home in the 600 block of Hartford Drive off Victoria Road in College Station Friday and immediately provided him with oxygen.

He was taken to the Wellborn Road Veterinary Medical Center for treatment for smoke inhalation and will remain there for at least one night, said Dr. Brittany Frank, the veterinarian on his case.

While Zeus has improved since arriving at the medical center and is able to walk on his own, Frank said he's not out of the woods yet.

He has signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, is receiving oxygen through a tube in his nose, is taking pain medication and was given plenty of fluids to combat shock, Frank said.

First responders were called to the scene at 1:20 p.m. to find heavy smoke coming from a front room in the home.

No one was inside at the time except for Zeus.

Firefighters had the fire under control by 2 p.m. and were able to contain the fire damage to the master bedroom and the attic space above the room, according to a press release from the College Station Fire Department. There was smoke damage throughout the home, however, displacing three roommates.

While it's believed that the fire started in the master bedroom, College Station fire marshals are investigating what caused it.

As for Zeus, Frank described him as a "sweetheart" who has been very well-behaved. He will be monitored for infections and will slowly be weaned off oxygen over the next few days.

"Kudos to firefighters for getting oxygen on Zeus right way," Frank said. "That makes a huge difference."

Congratulations to Kelly Templin named new City Manager last night by CS City Council

The College Station City Council has appointed Kelly Templin as its new city manager. The announcement and unanimous vote occurred following the council’s executive session Thursday evening.

About Kelly Templin
Templin is a third-generation Aggie who has served as city manager of Seabrook, Texas, since 2011, and has led numerous economic development and infrastructure improvement efforts in that city. For more than two decades, Templin has worked in and with municipal governments:

· 2011-present: City Manager, Seabrook, Texas
· 2007-2011: Deputy City Manager, Seabrook, Texas
· 2004-2007: Principal, IPS Group, planning/development consultancy
· 2002-2004: Director of Development Services, College Station
· 1996-2002: Director of Planning, Auburn, Ala.
· 1994-1996: Director of Planning/Historic Preservation Administrator, Oxford, Ohio
· 1993-1994: Director of Planning, Seabrook, Texas

Templin holds two degrees from Texas A&M University: a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design (1987) and a master’s degree in Urban & Regional Planning (1991).

“I’m honored and humbled by the opportunity to return to the community that my family and I love so much,” Templin said. “I look forward to working with the city council, staff and citizens to make College Station the best city it can be.”

A specific start date for Templin has not yet been determined, but Mayor Nancy Berry said the city council and staff should expect a relatively easy learning curve for the new city manager.

“In many ways, Kelly has never stopped being part of this community,” Mayor Berry said. “He and his family are here quite often; they have great friends here; and he already has long-standing relationships with the City of Bryan, Texas A&M University and many other important stakeholders. Our future is very bright.”

Templin will fill the vacancy created when City Manager Frank Simpson suffered a fatal heart attack on April 27 — only a few weeks after being appointed by the College Station City Council. Deputy City Manager Kathy Merrill was subsequently named interim city manager until a search could be completed. (KBTX.COM)

Career firefighters at elevated risk!

Attention!!!!  Take a minute to read this, it's worth your time!

 

October 17, 2013 – A new study conducted by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) on mortality and cancer incidence in career fire fighters shows an elevated risk of several types of cancer - and of all cancers combined - compared to the general U.S. population.
