Some Facts

They Say

‎Patty Ann Clark‎  I want to thank Bellaire Fire Department especially Tim Bell, Bobby Bennett and another firemen (that i do not know his name) for coming to my house tonight to check for carbon monoxide, luckily there was none. I also want to say how much I Appreciate that after they left, Bobby Bennett came back to my house to give me a carbon monoxide detector that he had at home just to make me feel better! This is why I take great pride in my town even with all the bad that goes on we still have good people here that goes out of their way to help people! So thank you for being an awesome Fire Department and great people!

Mary Humphrey     I was scrolling through Facebook and saw this picture which made me proud. Our volunteer fire department went down to show support to a fallen soldier. They also went the other night to give a hand escorting him home. One gave his life to serve our county and these guys risk their lives trying to make sure we are all safe here at home. Way to make Bellaire proud guys

Eileen Connors Penyak       So proud of our Bellaire Volunteer Fire Dept!! These men and women leave their homes in the middle of the night to help others. Fight a fire all night, then go to work in the morning. They do this because they care!! We are really lucky to have people of this type of character in our town. All firefighters are a special breed of people wanting to help others.Listening to the broadcast, so many firefighters came for mutual aid. So thankful. Prayers.🚒
