We regret to pass on that Houston (Texas) Fire Capt. Tommy Searcy, 45, died Tuesday after a months long battle with coronavirus. The 18-year veteran of the department spent weeks in intensive care at Memorial Hermann in The Woodlands. In their effort to help save their brothers’s life, members of Searcy’s Station 67 crew and the fire union battled red tape to help him get an experimental drug. In the early hours of August 18, Searcy’s coworkers even escorted the drug from Houston Methodist hospital to The Woodlands hospital where Searcy was being treated in the ICU. His death will be classified as a line-of-duty death by the HFD and sadly, is the third Houston firefighter to die from complications of COVID-19.Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
