  • And front line workers.

    A very popular Houston area photographer has donated his time to honor front line workers during the Covid19 pandemic.

    His work is excellent, and he recently did a shoot with/for my department and district.

    Included are multiple agencies, EMS/Fire, Law Enforcement, Doctors/Nurses.

    I’m honored and proud to be a part and have the photo.

    Thank you, Brian Anderson.
    Should you ever find yourself needing a photographer in the Houston area, look him up.

  • That is really neat.

    I'm not exactly on the same front line as you Pmed but the threat still exists every day. It's scary stuff.

    I hope the heroes act passes so Healthcare workers can get some much needed time off.

  • My prayers go out to all the front line workers that have to deal with this.
    I have two nurses in the family......................... and

    My mom now has Covid and is NOT expected to survive it.
    Not allowed to even see her. Maybe on her death bed.
    Amazing how the Doctors and nurses are able to keep us in touch and give us updates.

    Gut wrenching news to hear.
    I’m so sorry for you and your family.

    If I can offer anything it would be to hold on to any and all slivers of hope.

    We have seen some very sick folks pull through.

    God Speed to you and yours.

    So sorry to hear that. I can’t imagine having to go thru that. Hang in there.

  • ZorntoLargent - I'm so sorry to read your awful news, and thinking of you. I do know that some people critical in ICU have recovered, so I'm hoping so much your mum will recover. So horrible you can't even visit her (even though we know exactly why); just unspeakably cruel.

    Thanks, Lon, this is great, and so y'all should be proud! But, I can only see part of the photo - the caption cuts out on the right, halfway through "STRONG" and I can only see (for example) four people in the front row. Where are you? Or are you out of my field of view? Is it just me who has only part of the photo visible? Sometimes when I post photos they are cut off like this, and after previewing them, I go back and fiddle until they appear in entirety... not sure how or why!

    Smaller file photo, any different?


    Edit:that’s my bad/on me.
    I uploaded from my phone using Tapatalk, I rarely see the desktop version of .net.
    I loaded the original, guess the file size was too large for our format.
    I’ll go back and edit the OP.
    Thanks

  • The new pic is perfect, thanks! I'm so glad your local media made you stand forward to accept appreciation of first responders' service. In modern vernacular, you folks are rock stars, even though it was never your intent.

    But... where the heck are you in the photo(!), and please tell us about other folks in the picture, although I have no idea how many you actually personally know (depending on how large your department is).

    As a paramedic, how has your life changed since c-virus? I just can't imagine - Houston is such a huge population centre (what, maybe 4M in the general metro environs?)

    Looking at the picture I’m to the left and just behind the women front center.

    The two large red/black fire trucks, the smaller truck with the rescue boat, and the two ambulances are all from my station, and the personnel from those apparatus are in the photo.

    The K-9 and officer are from the Harris County Arson investigators office.

    The large Blue/White truck is a Harris County Hazmat (hazardous material) response team. Chemical/fuel spills, Meth Lab etc.

    Police represented are DPS (Texas State Police)
    Harris Co. Sheriff office
    Harris Co. Constables office
    Regional office of Dept of Homeland security.

    The guys in grey jump suits are from the AirMedical Helicopter.

    The folks in scrubs are Dr./Nurses from our two most local Hospitals.

    The photo was taken at our local High School, in the background you can see the stadium, field house, and ROTC obstacle course.

    Houston is the 4th largest city in the US. 2.5 million

    The Greater Houston area population is over 7 million, Harris co. (where I actually work) accounts for 4.7 million of the 7.
    My “district” is 56 square miles with a documented population of 14k, we have an estimated undocumented population of 3-5k. The district is sub-urban/rural.
    We have many multi million dollar homes , as well as folks that live in plywood shacks. (An interesting mix)

    My job/daily duties really haven’t changed all that much, exceptions being taking extra precautions with PPE, getting into/out of Hospitals, and being personally “screened” every 8 hours of our 24 hour shifts.

    No, can’t say that I do.
    HFD is huge, it’s impossible to know everyone.
    The name does however sound familiar.
