Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up October 2014

The reality is that when fire strikes, your home could be engulfed in smoke and flames in just a few minutes.

This year’s National Fire Prevention Week theme is (October 5-11, 2014), “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives”.  The focus is on the importance of assuring your smoke detectors are working. More information is available at www.fpw.org.

It is very important to verify your smoke alarms are working so take the time to check them about once per month.  The Ponderosa FD recommends having both ionization AND at least one photoelectric type smoke detector in your home as a minimum and at least one on each floor.

Ponderosa FD is pleased to offer a preventive health event.  Life Line Screening will host their affordable, non-invasive and painless health screenings on October 3, 2014 at PFD Headquarters, 17061 Rolling Creek, 77090.  Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening, for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis. Please call 1-888-653-6450 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com/community-partners to register and to receive a special $10 discount.

Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time ends on November 2.  Change Your Clock – Change Your Smoke Detector Battery.

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.
