Ponderosa Fire Department Round Up

In the “old” days, we were all volunteer.  During our “adolescent” phase we had some part time paid firefighters – today it is a different world.  Since our inception in 1972, as the #3 Spring VFD fire station, so much has changed that we are a full-fledged all hazards emergency response agency.  We believe when you call 9-1-1 your expectations are that we arrive safely, quickly and with highly qualified personnel – after all, you are having the worst day of your life!

It is apparent our volunteer force cannot keep up with the requirements we face today.  Your fire department responded to 1,887 emergencies in 2015 and now averaging 169 responses per month.  The work load continues to grow, and we now have 15 full time and 5 full time equivalent firefighters on duty 24/7.  Our volunteers remain dedicated and work very hard for you.

The recent floods in the Westador and Ponderosa subdivisions were horrible for our residents.  We worked with the National Guard and the Texas Task Force Team assisting residents in emergency and non-emergency conditions.

Emergency Services District #28 is in the midst of building a replacement fire station on Imperial Valley.  This station is now staffed weekdays by paid firefighters housed in a rental trailer.  The existing fire station was originally built in 1993 on donated land.

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.
