Ponderosa FD Round Up – April 2014

The Ponderosa Fire Department is pleased to announce a new replacement fire engine that was recently placed in service.  The 2014 model is similar to existing ones and will allow for continued state of the art response vehicles.  This unit will displace the 2004 engine at Headquarters in the Ponderosa subdivision.  We continue to assure our capital replacement program for high quality service delivery.  This fire engine was purchased with cash and has a cost avoidance of about $60,000 in interest payments and pre-pay discounts.
 
Every year our fire department has set aside dollars for the eventual replacement of our firefighter air packs.  We started this program in 2001 and have recently purchased 40 new packs and 80 cylinders.  This purchase was $236,000 and we will sell the old ones to restart the savings process.
 
We were able to pay off loans on the ladder truck and Station 63/Training Facility in late 2013.  These loan pay offs resulted in interest savings over $60,000.
 
The Ponderosa FD is in the process of hiring four more full time firefighters.  This will bring us up to 16 career firefighters and will allow for staffing Station #3 during weekday hours. 
 
There is a need for volunteer firefighters --- please contact 281-444-8465 for further information.  We provide the training, equipment and insurance; you provide the commitment to helping your community.   www.ponderosavfd.org

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.
