ADOPT A FIRE STATION
Orange County Fire Rescue Department is pleased to announce the continued tradition of the annual Adopt a Fire Station initiative for the 2020 holiday season. The goal is to once again have all 43 fire stations, as well as our 911 dispatch center, adopted by families and/or local organizations between the weeks of December 1 through January 1. The last day to sign up will be December 4th, 2020.
This event has become a means for our community to say thank you to first responders who work throughout the holidays to serve others.
Each station will have the opportunity to be adopted three times (A shift, B Shift and C shift) on a first-come, first-served basis. Please keep in mind crews will remain in service during visits and may be dispatched for an emergency at any time. If a crew is out on a call when you arrive, please stand by and wait for their return or call the dispatch center at 407-737-2444.
We are truly grateful for your generosity and look forward to the day we can welcome the community back into our stations. However, to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and ensure compliance with CDC guidelines, we have implemented some minor changes to the Adopt a Fire Station tradition to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones, as well as our crews:
- We are asking that you remain outside the fire station during the visit.
- Please maintain social distancing during the visit.
- We will not be able to provide any fire station tours, at this time.
Crews work 24-hour rotations to cover three shifts – A,B,C. Each station and shift is available for adoption, along with our 911 dispatch center. View this list of fire stations to find addresses.
UPDATE: Adoptions are now over for this year. Thank you for your interest.
