MEDIA ADVISORY Firefighter Brad Phipps Update

Contact: Joe Arrington SAFD PIO – (210) 355-8504

Today the SAFD is elated to share that Firefighter Brad Phipps has been released from the hospital. Brad will now be able to continue his recovery and therapy process from the comfort of his home with his wife and family.

SAFD Chief Charles Hood expresses, “On behalf of the entire SAFD family, we are overjoyed at the news that our beloved brother Brad is heading home today. This milestone is not only a testament to the spirit of a fighter that Brad embodies, but also to the exceptional medical care he received while at the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research Burn Center and the San Antonio Military Medical Center. The doctors and staff at these facilities truly are miracle workers; we as a community thank them for their dedication and commitment. Please join me in continuing to pray for Brad’s healing and recovery as he moves forward in this process.”

Brad also asked that we share the following “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the people of San Antonio for their amazing generosity and continued prayers. I am very happy to be able to go home to my family to continue my recovery. The love and support shown towards myself, Tina, and our boys by my fire family with the SAFD and District 2 Fire & Rescue has been overwhelming. They truly are family in every sense of the word.”

We ask that you continue to respect the Phipps family wishes and please do not try to contact them. If the time comes that Brad is ready to do interviews, these will be scheduled through the SAFD PIO office.
