BURNET — People who would like to make a financial contribution to support the family of a deceased Burnet firefighter and an injured paramedic can do so through the Hill Country 100 Club.

The club raises money to support area first responders and their families in case of injury or death. It is collecting donations for Daniel Hampton’s family and Timothy Pierce.

On Sept. 18, Hampton, 35, died after the Burnet ambulance he was driving crashed into the back of a semi-truck on Texas 29 between Bertram and Liberty Hill at about 9 p.m. He had been a Burnet firefighter and EMT for about two years.

He leaves behind a wife and four children.

Hampton’s service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Sept. 24 at Hill Country Fellowship Church, 200 Houston Clinton Drive in Burnet. Burial will be in Newport.

The accident also injured Burnet paramedic Timothy Pierce, 54, as well as a patient in the ambulance.

The Hill Country 100 Club is accepting donations for the Hampton and Pierce families. Checks and monetary donations may be mailed to Hill Country 100 Club, P.O. Box 381, Burnet, TX 78611.

In the memo section of the check, individuals need to indicate to which recipient they are donating, such as “Hampton family” or “Timothy Pierce.”

If donating to both, officials ask that donors write separate checks for each.
