Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up

At the time of this writing we hope the flood(s) recovery is well underway and complete.  During the April flood we worked with the National Guard and the Texas Task Force to transport over 200 citizens from the rear of Ponderosa and Westador.  Advice for the future is to thoroughly pay attention to media reports; rising water usually means evacuate early.  We operate in two modes during flood conditions:  the first phase is rescue mode assisting those who have medical issues; the second mode is transporting those who request evacuation.  It takes time and resources to traverse and to move people so it is imperative you make the decision to relocate soonest and to prevent late decisions for evacuations when resources are already committed.

You can view rising water conditions at various points at http://www.harriscountyfws.org/.  Practice using this tool prior to emergency conditions.

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.
