Emergency Operations

The Operation Section prepares for and responds to emergencies of all types. In addition to planning and training for emergency responses, the Section also works to ensure sufficient facilities, fire vehi­cles, equipment and other infrastructure are acquired and maintained before they are needed for emergency incidents. 

Three battalion chiefs report to the Operations Deputy Chief. They command three shifts of 35 emergency responders who are on duty around the clock. The battalion chiefs spend the bulk of their time working on special projects to plan for emergencies. All three battalion chiefs lead departmental committees and other efforts related to emergency preparedness and response.

The Orange City Fire Department is providing excellent service in the present and preparing for the future!
