Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up - December 2016

Have a Happy & Safe Holiday Season

Everyday People, Doing Everything, Every Day

It is hard to believe but we are celebrating our forty-fourth year of success (already).  In 1972 a group of community minded people formed the Ponderosa Volunteer Fire Department as Station #3 of the Spring Volunteer Fire Department.  At that time there were 550 homes, one apartment complex and 35 businesses.  Just imagine the growth and the challenges this “little ole VFD” went through during the decades with the continuing mantra of doing and being the best we can be.

We are rated in the top 6% of the nation for insurance ratings – Public Protection Class 3 for your insurance agent to lower your homeowners insurance cost.  We have our own training facility, the finest equipment and highly trained and dedicated volunteers, part time and full time professionals.  We work seamlessly every day with our neighboring agencies jointly serving you. We received the bronze award in national competition for our fire station #2 at 4362 Louetta in the Station Style Award program sponsored by Fire Chief Magazine.  (Stop by sometime and see the World Trade Center I-Beam).  We are about 3 months away from completing/replacing Station 3 on Imperial Valley.

Our response times continue to be less than five minutes to ALL people and businesses in our district.  Our public education reaches thousands of people per year.  We were the first fire department responder organization with Cypress Creek EMS, and the list goes on.  It’s all about you and your continuous support.  Our spirit, drive and professionalism are driven by you – thank you.

Our funding comes from Emergency Services District #28.  The website intends to be transparent to our citizens.  www.hcesd28.com 

Fireworks season is just about here.  Our recommendation is to NOT buy them.  But if you insist --- please supervise your children, and do not allow aerial devices near buildings.  We have had many events that have caused injuries and fires.  Also consider your neighbors with the noise and smoke, and please clean the area of debris.

Ponderosa Fire Department Station 62 was recently honored with the bronze award in the annual Fire Chief Magazine’s Station Style Design Award for volunteer/combination agencies in competition throughout the United States and Canada.  Emergency Services District #28 utilized BRW Architects and LDF Construction (Spring, Texas) to build this highly functional and beautiful fire station.  Our community and our members are very proud of this fire station.  You should stop by and visit and revere the I-Beam from the 2001 World Trade Center disaster - 4362 Louetta at Sorrel Ridge.
