News Updates from the Orange Volunteer Fire Company

In the month of June 2017, the Orange Volunteer Fire Company responded to 57 calls. Of those calls, 16 were EMS or Lift Assist, 15 were motor vehicle accidents, 12 were alarm activations, 4 were structure fires and 2 were vehicle fires. Volunteers also attended the Summer Feeding Kick Off Carnival at the Taylor Education Administration Complex and provided a truck for standby at the Orange County Tractor Pull. In addition to responding to calls, public education events, and training, volunteers also put in long hours working our annual firemen’s parade and fair. We would like to thank everyone for their support during the fair.

OVFC began its first ever in-house apparatus operator refresher series. This in house didactic and hands on practical opportunity provides our drivers a chance to refresh skills they don't normally use. The skills reviewed include pressurized hydrant operations, static water drafting, water supply operations, aerial placement and operations, and in-service rescue equipment skills. Overall, our operators are who get the water to the fire, make the aerial ladder go up, and make the extrication process so seamless. We will continue to review and critique this process to make our department and operators the very best.
