Jerod Davenport joined the Spring Fire Department in the fall of 1997. Starting as a junior member at Station 72, Jerod has earned an AAS in Fire Science from Blinn College and risen to the rank of Deputy Chief. Jerod also serves as a Lieutenant and EMT Paramedic for The Woodlands Fire department and an adjunct instructor for the Lone Star College Fire Academy in Montgomery.
Jerod qualifications are many. Through the Texas Commission on Fire Protection, Jerod holds the following certifications: Firefighter, Fire Investigator, Driver Operator – Pumper, Inspector, Incident Safety Officer, Fire Service Instructor, Fire Officer, Wildland Firefighter and Hazardous Materials Technician. Additional certifications held with the SFFMA include Master Firefighter and Public information officer. Jerod is also a board member of the Spring Volunteer Fire Association.
Most of Jerod’s spare time is spent soaking up every moment he can with his wife, Stephanie, and 3 children. When he has the chance to catch a baseball game, Jerod will cheer on the Houston Astros. Jerod believes that with God all things are possible, which is probably why he aimed so high as a child with his dream to be a trash-man.
