|The Houston Fire Department (HFD) Logistics Facility on Dart Street near the neighborhood of Washington Avenue Coalition/Memorial Park is currently using temporary 1500 KW generators while undergoing an electrical system upgrade for the facility. These generators power the electrical systems of HFD Logistics, allowing HFD the ability to continue critical emergency response operations.
Leading up to August 31, 2022, HFD received complaints that the generators were a noise disturbance for the residents in the immediate area.
Fire Chief Samuel Peña and HFD support teams are working to quickly mitigate the situation, we strive to be good neighbors and understand the importance of living in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood.
HFD will be replacing the existing generators with new, level four “whisper” system generators this week. The new generators are designed to produce minimal sound.
“I want to thank the residents affected by the operation of our electrical generators for bringing the issue to my attention, and for their patience as we work to quickly resolve the issue,” said Fire Chief Samuel Peña.
