Why a new Fire Station?
Why expand the current station?
Safety: firefighters store and don gear next to the apparatus, risking contamination and injury from moving vehicles.
Size: fire trucks are getting larger with each model; we lack storage for equipment and inadequate space for training activities.
Service: lack of space hinders our ability to effectively meet the community’s needs now and for the future.
Why this location?
- Expanding the old station is cost-effective.
- The land is already owned by Orange City
- The central location enables fast response
- The building will be a visual cornerstone for the community
