Thursday, April 21, 2011 - We are very pleased to announce that DC Fire Sergeant Ramon Hounshell was released from The Burn Center at Washington Hospital Center this afternoon. Sergeant Hounshell will continue to receive treatment and rehabilitation on an out patient level from the burn he sustained on April 8 while operating at a house fire in North East DC. Sergeant Hounshell and his family would like to thank everyone for their outpouring of support while he has been in the hospital. Hounshell is expected to make a full recovery from his burns and return to work in the next few months.
Firefighter Chuckie Ryan still remains in the Burn Center Intensive Care Unit at Washington Hospital Center. Ryan had a third surgery yesterday and still faces several more in the near future. Please continue to keep Firefighter Ryan and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Firefighter Ryan continues to remain committed to making a full recovery and is encouraged by the support that he continues to receive from his wife Kathy, his family, and fellow firefighters. The members of Rescue 3 and Engine 15 continue to remain by his side each day to offer support for Ryan and his family. They are a true example of what the word brotherhood means.
