Hail of Fire: A Man and His Family






Disaster reports often focus on statistics, for example, the 2011 Texas Wildfires made up the third worst wildfire seires in modern U.S. history, and the most destructive in the history of Texas. But tonight, artist turned politician turned public policy leader Randy Fritz will offer an intimate account of his family's experience during and after their Bastrop home was engulfed in flames, and how they are working to rebuild their lives in the land they love after calamity.


Randy Fritz is the former chief operating officer of the Texas Department of State Health Services, the state’s public and mental health agency. He helped coordinate the state’s response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and led the team that implemented the Children’s Health Insurance Program in Texas. Fritz lives in Bastrop, Texas, with his wife, Holly, and their youngest daughter, Miranda.
