FHP Home

A few weeks ago, my daughter who attends Valencia Community College in Kissimmee, returned to her vehicle after class only to find that her vehicle would not start. Between the heat of the day and the frustration from her car not wanting to start, she became very upset and did not know what else to do. She had called my cell phone and I explained that I would get there as soon as possible, but neither one of us had jumper cables. My son, Trooper Austin Prather contacted Trooper Hector Rodriguez who was in the area and assisted us in getting her car started and on our way.

I want to extend my sincere appreciation to Trooper Rodriguez for taking the time out of his hectic and busy schedule to assist my daughter and myself. Trooper Rodriguez demonstrated the values of FHP: Courtesy, Service and Protection, not because of a mutual "FAMILY" member, but I believe he would do that for any other stranded motorist on our highways.

In closing, I ask that this email be directed to his supervisor and a copy sent to Trooper Rodriguez also.
