As Harvey flooded the city, thousands of Houston firefighters were told to stay home 
The scenes? Catastrophic. Houston? Underwater. Thousands were rescued from their homes. But at the height of Hurricane Harvey’s flooding, thousands of Houston firefighters were told not to report to work. When the topic was brought up with Marty Lancton, his eyes turned red. The president of Houston’s firefighter’s union tried to swallow and hide his emotions. “We’re sorry,” Lancton said. “Every Houston firefighter would put their life on the line for anybody without question, with a moment’s notice, and this is not different.”
