Trailblazer Luncheon 2024

Happy Black History Month! Please join us to acknowledge the active African American Women firefighters of the Houston Fire Department.

We will be acknowledging the ladies hired after the 1985 hiring freeze. These five black women graduated from the Val Janke Fire Academy in 1993, Class D. There were 69 cadets in the class, with 17 women in total. During their time in the fire department, they have made a difference through various areas throughout the fire department.
