Klein Volunteer Fire Department Station 2 History

 

1972  -   Personnel started basic training during the summer and were
just finishing as the new Fire Fox engine was delivered to Station 1.
The last basic training session for Station 2 was on the new engine.

1973   -    Station was built on Oak Creek Village community property and
funded by the developer. It was constructed by the builder of the
homes in the subdivision.  It was located at Gladeridge Dr. and
Gladebrook Dr. in the OCV subdivision. It was a single bay, wood
frame building painted bright red with white trim.

Early/Mid 1980  -   The FM 1960 Communications Center was organized and went
into operation.  The organization required a new identification
system for the various departments-KFD was assigned numbers in
the 30′s, so the OCV 2 was now Station 32.

1982  -   The station was rebuilt as a two- bay red metal building incorporating the original
portion of the wood station that housed the electrical and phone service mountings.
The station also got a new Snorkel Tele-Squirt Model 5042 ladder truck.

1987-1988   -  The station was rebuilt again from a two-bay to a three-bay structure. During construction
L32 was parked at an Exxon Station and E32 was parked at the home of a station member.

1992-1993   -    The station received a new E-ONE custom built engine. Station 32 now housed three pieces
of equipment: E32, L32 and EQ32.

1997  -   A new custom built all aluminum 75 ft. E-ONE ladder truck replaced the 50 ft. Tele-Squirt.

2003  -   The station received a custom built, all aluminum, 100 ft. E-ONE ladder truck. A small extension
was added to the center bay of the station to accommodate.

2004-2006  -   Property at 14640 Gladebrook Drive, the current Station 32, was purchased by Emergency Service
District #16 for almost $250,000. Construction began in 2005 and Open House was held in early 2006.
The original station property including the building was turned back over to the OCV HOA.

Cold Weather Tips

There are several things you can take in to your own hands to keep you and your family safe. Please review the tips below and practice them every single time.

  • Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet away from heating equipment.
  • Always plug portable heaters directly into an outlet; never an extension cord.
  • Turn off space heaters every time you leave the room.
  • Have your chimney inspected and cleaned every year.
  • Place a sturdy screen in front of your fireplace to avoid sparks coming into the room.
  • Dispose of fireplace ashes into a metal container; never a plastic container.
  • Test smoke alarms monthly.
  • Install a Carbon Monoxide alarm in your home per manufactures instruction. Older homes often do not have this kind of alarm.
  • Install a “damper clamp” on fire place dampers which have gas logs. This keeps the damper slightly open in the event a gas log is burning but the damper was not opened before it was lit.
  • Change HVAC return air filters frequently to improve the efficiency of your furnace.

Happy Thanksgiving from Klein VFD!

Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind while preparing your Thanksgiving meals. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable holiday!

 

  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
  • If you are going to fry a turkey, do not fry a frozen turkey; make sure it is thawed and it is fried outside away from anything that could catch on fire.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  • Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
  • Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
  • Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
  • Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Never leave children alone in room with a lit a candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.
