Captain Troy Hammons is a 23-year veteran of the Lake Cities Fire Department and a founding member of the Lake Cities Firefighters Local 4231. At the beginning of June, an MRI showed a torn calf muscle, which eventually led to a severe infection. Six surgeries later, Captain Hammons and his family had to make the difficult decision to amputate below the knee. Captain Hammons has been in the hospital for a month, and due to COVID-19 hospital restrictions he’s only been able to see Kinley, his 14-year-old daughter, two times. He is scheduled for two more surgeries before discharge to a facility to begin rehabilitation. The Hammons family will face challenges with medical bills and some extensive remodel work to their home to accommodate Troy during his recovery.
