USFA LODD: Texas Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 03.31.2016

Cadet Steven Whitfield II, 32, was hired by the Houston Fire Department on October 26, 2015, and was a member of Class 2015-G that will graduate in June 2016.

The cause of death is still under investigation.
Our condolences to the Whitfield Family & Friends, Houston Fire Department, and to all affected by Cadet Steven WhitfieldII’s passing.
