The PVFD members and their families came together again this December for their annual PVFD Christmas Party. This year, we recognized FF Sam Thrash for being voted Firefighter of the Year.
Merry Christmas From Our Family To Yours!
Howdy Ponder! Well we made it through July without it being too hot but August is here. With August usually being our hotter month, I am sure folks will be headed to water parks, swimming pools or the lake. Please, Please keep an eye out for each other and ESPECIALLY the young ones. Make sure those that can not swim have floatation devices and if you are on the lake EVERYONE has a life jacket. Doesn't matter how strong of a swimmer you are, if you become impaired in any form or fashion, the life vest is what is going to save you. Also be aware that even though we get some rain now and then, it doesn't take long for things to dry out. So be careful with outdoor hot work, burn piles, BBQs etc. On another note, you can help us out by making sure your address is clearly noticeable on your mailbox and house. Make sure the address on the mailbox can be seen from two directions and on your house large (2-3 inches) numbers with a constrasting color so we can find you. If you live off the road from where your mailbox is, either have someone meet us at the entrance or give good landmarks to the 9-1-1 dispatcher. We can't help you if we can't find you. We have members starting back to Paramedic school and the Fire Academy-GOOD LUCK! The PVFD is getting better and better every year so that we can provide the professional level of service we do. We had two members make their annual trek to Texas A&M annual fire school as instructors last month. Thankfully it wasn't as hot as it usually is. PVFD responded to 38 calls last month and our members gave up 79 man hours. As always we are deeply grateful for their commitment. Take care and God Bless!!
