NEW CANEY – A Houston firefighter is recovering at a hospital in Kingwood after being involved in a serious accident early Saturday morning.

KPRC 2 spoke to a family friend, Aliya Oliver, over the phone.

“He’s had three surgeries. He was in surgery yesterday. He has extensive injuries. They were able to get him into a chair today from his hospital bed. He’s in a lot of pain, but in good spirits,” Oliver said.

Farmer enlisted in the Navy in 2012 and became a volunteer firefighter for the Magnolia Fire Department in 2018. A year later, he joined the Lone Star Fire Academy and graduated in 2021.

“Something pretty cool. He received the Rookie of the Year award in 2022 from the 100th club for his assistance in saving the lives of two people,” Oliver said.

Farmer’s wife Janae, his daughter Avery, family, friends, and countless fire departments are grateful he survived the crash.
