The 10 Coolest Houston Fire Station Patches: Skulls, Gangs & Singed Balls
With everyone watching the wildfires blazing around the state, it's a good time to think good thoughts about the people who risk their lives as firefighters.
Each Houston Fire Department station has its own patch, and some of them are very cool. Or odd.
Here are the ten best, in our humble opinion.
10. Station 35: Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta
This isn't so much a station patch as it is a gang symbol, from the name "Boulevard Kings" to the evil crowned dude to the death-or-glory motto. Respek.
9. Station 74: 'Roided up and ready to go
The "Guardians of Greenspoint" is another great name, especially for a neighborhood most call "Gunpoint." And that Dalmatian puts Brian Cushing to shame.
8. Station 55: Old school. Really old school
Any kid who sees this patch will wonder what the hell an Indian chief and a buffalo have to do with the phrase "double nickel." Station 55 is hard-core Federalist, and they don't need no Thomas freaking Jefferson on their coins.
7. Station 37: Wordless. And bad-ass
Mottos are for pussies.
