FHP Home

I want to send my thanks to the FHP and more specifically Trooper Justin Smatt for his assistance this past Tuesday morning. I was a long way from home when my motorcycle blew a tire on Interstate 10 at 2am. It was raining fairly hard and cell service was sporadic. Trooper Smatt spotted me and assisted me with getting a tow truck. This took a while because apparently nobody wants to tow you at 2 am. Three different tow companies were contacted before someone agreed to show up. Trooper Smatt also gave me shelter from the rain and assisted me with finding a dealship that my bike could be towed to. He could have easily called just the first tow company and went on his way but he had the decency and professionalism to stay with me until the situation was resolved. I honestly didn't expect this kind of public service and now have a much more positive view of the FHP. Thanks again for the assistance, it saved me a lot of grief when I was tired and wet and cold. Keep up the good work.
