McQueeney firefighters enjoyed many children (and adults!) who stopped by Fire Station #2 on Halloween. The firefighters passed out candy, cookies, hot chocolate and a variety of toys to neighborhood goblins who stopped in to enjoy the trucks and treats that evening.
Dear McQueeney residents. Regrettably, due to circumstances beyond the department’s control, we regret to announce the cancellation of our annual Halloween bay event this year.
We will still be distributing candy at our second location on Walnut Avenue in McQueeney Estates on Halloween evening. All goblins, please stop by!
Three members of the McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department participated in the annual Tower Climb commemorating those firefighters and first responders that lost their lives in the terrorist attack at the twin towers in New York on 9/11/2001. The participants climb the Tower of the Americas twice to represent the 110 floors of the towers that were destroyed. On that fateful day, 343 firefighters, 70 law enforcement offers and 9 EMS personnel perished attempting to save the lives of the occupants of the towers. Representing the McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department were Interim Chief Ray Salas, Lt. Jonathan Dominguez, and Lt. Stephen Talavera.
McQueeney Elementary held Field Days on Thursday, May 11th and Friday May 12th. The students were allowed to participate in a number of fun outdoor activities, and treated to snow cones. The McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department was on site with several of their vehicles including their ladder truck. Students were “cooled down” with spray from the trucks and hoses.
The McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department recently received notice that a substantial area of our response territory would now be serviced by Squad 71, a county based fire department. We want very much to keep servicing this area, and ask that you sign the petition for McQueeney VFD to retain service to the area. Residents of the following areas may lose our protection:
Bamboo Bluff Rd.
Cypress Ridge Rd.
Erskine Ferry Rd.
Hot Shot Lane
Isle of View
Laguna Vista Dr.
Lake Ridge Dr.
Lake Village Rd.
Red Fox Run
Ridge Crest Dr.
All properties south of FM 725 and Stagecoach Rd. to the I-10 Corridor
A map showing the affected areas in yellow is shown below. We are trying to find a clearer map to present to you. The McQueeney VFD will retain the blue areas.
Please scan the QR code or click on the link below to view and sign the petition. By signing, you are asking the county to allow McQueeney VFD to continue to service these response areas! Please be sure to complete all fields, sign, join, and submit.
Once again, we thank you for your support!
Thank you to the McQueeney community and friends that took part in our Halloween Party and haunted house. Your participation and generous monetary support are sincerely appreciated!
