Boots and Coots's executive offices are located on the fifth floor of this building near a shopping center on the Sam Houston Parkway. Boots Hansen and Coots Matthews worked for the Red Adair Company, a well fire and blowout control company made notorious after Red Adair advised John Wayne on how to play an oil firefighter for the 1968 film Hellfighters. In 1978, Boots and Coots left to form their own company, which became famous for handling many of the 700 oil fires in the Persian Gulf, after the war in 1991, along with Red Adair and the Wild Well Control Company. Though the company is diversifying into a pressure control company, you can still call them for your well fire emergency at 1-800 BLOW-OUT.
