Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up
Construction has begun on our new/replacement fire Station 63 at 21455 Imperial Valley which has been in the design phase for about a year. During the construction we will relocate the fire engine to the large canopy on the property; the new shed will house the mini-pumper and the grass fire truck. We have rented a large mobile home to house our firefighters. This will be a challenging year for our members during the construction period.
2015 was a very busy year for your fire department. We experienced a 20% increase in responses and the only explanation we have is the population density continues to increase. Our Station 62 on Louetta will continue to house Spring FD firefighters as they replace their Station #75 on FM2920.
You should be very careful during cold weather times by having your home heating inspected, testing your smoke detectors, and having a fire extinguisher available. Never leave candles burning while gone, always use a large ceramic plate under a burning candle, and never place the candle on any combustible material.
