A mother came to our #3 fire station on Imperial Valley Drive with her 10 year old daughter In cradled arms --- PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

The daughter had asthma and could not breathe. She stopped breathing and became unresponsive. Our firefighters performed CPR and used an advanced airway. Cypress Creek EMS arrived and continued treatment and transport.

The daughter’s doctor called today – she is going to make a complete recovery!!

Thank you to our professionals who give back every day.


Good afternoon from the Texas Department of Emergency Management

Yesterday, the Governor announced a statewide effort to collect damage assessment data for this unprecedented event. This information is being collected to help officials across the state gain an understanding of damages for individuals throughout Texas. EMCs will have direct access to all reporting via WebEoc on the Recovery Common Operating Picture Board.

Our objective in this effort is to demonstrate the scale of this disaster at the local level. As such, this will be a local effort with support from the state. With this detailed information, we will be able to demonstrate the total impact statewide.

Feel free to use your local seal or office name with this distribution. The success of this effort will assist the local jurisdiction with the eligibility to potential federal programs.

Effective September 1, 2019 the Ponderosa Fire Department (Emergency Services District #28) achieved the Public Protection Class (PPC) rating of 2! This is the Insurance Services Office (ISO) nationwide community fire protection rating system that utilizes water supplies, communications and fire department capabilities that affects most insurance policy costs, and in our case will reduce most insurance rates. You should contact your insurance agent soonest to obtain the savings.

The PPC rating places us in the top 4% of our nation’s fire and rescue agencies. Chief Fred Windisch stated, “We have consistently built our response system with the citizen in mind as our first priority; this rating demonstrates reliability, professionalism and capabilities that are truly the best of the best. Our volunteers, part time and full time paid firefighters always work with the end in mind, Service First.”

The PPC system uses many components evaluating various aspects of the response system. A “10” rating is no fire department and a 1 rating is the highest. The community rating is just that, and our wonderful water districts are very dependable and capable, our Cypress Creek EMS Communications System is second to none, and our fire department meets or exceeds national standards in most categories. The end result is dependable emergency services because when our citizens call 9-1-1 they are having the worst day of their lives.

The boards of directors of the Ponderosa Volunteer Fire Association and Emergency Services District #28 are totally focused on service provisions. These citizens of our community are dedicated to making the right decisions within the resources available. The lists of accomplishments are many; fire stations and equipment are top notch and we have volunteers and paid personnel who are the best people that understand our mission.

Emergency responses continue to increase. This year we will respond to over 2,300 emergencies along with our neighboring agencies in a seamless response system – you will see red trucks and green trucks at emergencies but we know you do not care what color the truck is – you want high quality quick response.

Thank you for your continued confidence and support since 1972.
