Mission Statement

Aiding families displaced by residential fires across Texas and assisting all involved with Line of Duty Deaths as requested.

Description

Texas Firewalkers was created to fill the gap between the time immediately after a traumatic event occurs, such as a fire or an act of Mother Nature, and the time other assistance arrives.
Today, Texas Firewalkers is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that is working to grow and aid fire victims in their time of need.
My name is Blake "PeeWee" Henson. I am a career firefighter/EMT-B. I created Texas Firewalkers in 2008 as a safety net for Texas families affected by residential fires. Almost 10 years ago I was personally affected after a residential fire. Although I was grateful to be alive, having basic necessities such as shelter, food, and toiletries available to me would have made the days following my loss easier to bare. Unfortunately as humans we cannot prevent disaster from occurring, however, as a non-profit organization and together with your help, we can relieve some of the initial emotional and physical trauma inflicted upon our community's fire victims right here in the state we call home. Since 2009 our volunteers have spent countless hours planning and implementing events to raise funds so that we may continue touching lives. Imagine your company or family's name proudly displayed throughout the venue of one of the many events that the Texas Firewalkers host.
