The Houston Fire Department said its firefighters are running on empty as they try to keep up with the city’s pandemic surge. HFD Chief Sam Pena said about 300 firefighters are in quarantine. Pena said the ones not in quarantine are overworked and there is no end in sight.
“Yes, they’re being stretched thin, and yes, they’re being overworked and it is stressful for them,” Pena said.
