Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up

During an emergency, you do not have time to ask questions, and you do whatever is necessary to correct the situation.  If you are sick or injured you call an ambulance. If you are robbed or assaulted you call the police.  If you have a fire, you naturally call the fire department.  As a matter of fact, people call the fire department for many other reasons besides just fires.  When there is a crisis, the Ponderosa Fire Department is there for you. There is a saying in the fire service that when people need help for anything they call the fire department. 

Many people are also curious about the basic background of their community based fire department.  The Ponderosa FD is a 70 member primarily volunteer fire department.  The paid staff and volunteers are at three fire stations, Ponderosa, Cypressdale, and Northview in a 13 square mile area.  The fire chief directs the departments’ operations in conjunction with five command officers.  All volunteers are in constant communications with the Cypress Creek EMS dispatch center via radio pager.  Six personnel from a pool of firefighters assist the force and are paid an hourly rate Monday through Friday (and nights), and there are fifteen full time personnel 24/7.  Our volunteers also staff the stations every night.  HQ and the Northview fire station are staffed with paid personnel, and we are sharing our Louetta station with Spring with joint 24/7 staffing.

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.
