Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up - October 2016

The reality is that when fire strikes, your home could be engulfed in smoke and flames in just a few minutes.   “In the old days” a fire burned with much less intensity and over a longer time period, but with today’s synthetic materials science has proven that fire growth is increasing at a much faster rate.

This year’s National Fire Prevention Week theme is (October -15, 2016), “Don’t Wait, Check The Date”.  The focus is on the importance of assuring your smoke detectors are working and to look at the date.  Smoke detectors last up to ten years and should be replaced.  New smoke detectors have 10 year batteries but never forget to test them occasionally.  More information is available at www.firepreventionweek.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.
Fire Station 63 construction on Imperial Valley Drive is now moving at a fast pace.  Follow its progress on our Facebook page.

Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time ends on November 6.  Change Your Clock – Change Your Smoke Detector Battery.  Visit our website at www.ponderosavfd.org and follow us on Facebook.

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.
