INVEST

$30 Million for Orange County Fire Rescue

DESCRIPTION

Through INVEST, Orange County Fire Rescue will receive $30 million over the next five years to fund the following:

  • $18 million for three new fire stations;
  • $7 million for new fire apparatus and equipment; and
  • $5 million allocation as partial funding for a regional fire training facility.

PURPOSE

The purpose of the new funding is to ensure Orange County Fire Rescue has the ability to continue its industry-leading performance and deliver an exceptional service level to the citizens and visitors of Orange County.

New fire stations will facilitate rapid response in its highest-demand areas. Additional funding will enable firefighters and EMS personnel to respond to emergencies with care and safety using advanced equipment and the latest technologies. A new regional training center will provide an environment in which first responders receive the highest-quality training at a state-of-the-art facility. The center will serve as a regional asset.

STATUS

Following the completion of a comprehensive Fire Station Location Study, site analysis and feasibility studies for the new fire station locations are underway. Orange County Fire Rescue is in the process of procuring apparatus and equipment as well as scheduling delivery dates to target areas. The department is in active discussion with partner agencies for the new regional training facility.

Station 67 will be the first completed fire station under INVEST. Learn more about this important community project below:
