Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Since 1925 this has been a slogan that members of the Orange Volunteer Fire Association have lived by. All members service on a volunteer basis and respond to all fire service calls 24 hours/ 7 days a week/ 365 days a year. Annually the department responds to an average of about 500 calls, last year 2018 there were 579 calls with a quick response time of under five minutes. Service calls range from structure fires, activated fire alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, motor vehicle accident extrication and clean up, hazmat situations, etc.
In these unprecedented times we are all taking precautions to protect ourselves and the ones that we care about. The OVFD members are taking steps to protect themselves and the ones that we serve from the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
