Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up January 2015

Happy New Year!  We hope you have a very safe and prosperous year.   

Now is the time to make your New Year’s resolutions.  Here are some suggestions.  Check the smoke detector every month, replace the smoke detector if it is over 10 years old; mark your calendar, or better yet, put a reminder in your computer or smart phone.  Purchase a fire extinguisher and inspect it regularly to assure the gauge is in the “green”.  Have a certified company clean your home heating unit.  Do not store chemicals/cleaners where kids can reach, and never mix products.  Never burn anything other than logs in your fireplace.  If you use wood, have the chimney cleaned every few years.  Never use gasoline or other flammable liquids as a cleaner.  Use ladders safely, never work off the top of a step ladder.  Repair electrical problems immediately.  Candles – use a large plate, never place near anything, always extinguish when you leave.  Never allow yourself to leaving cooking unattended.

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.
