To The Leader

The City of Orange Fire Department will be hosting the 3rd annual “Fill the Fire Truck Campaign” at Central Fire Station, located at 501 N. 7th Street.  The lobby of Central Fire Station houses a vintage fire truck. The truck represents firefighters of the past, their sacrifices, and a commitment to community service.  While the 1920 model truck is a sight to see in itself, the City of Orange Fire Department has a vision of it serving the community once again.

This campaign is intended to support local families in need within the Orange community.  Christmas is just around the corner and the City of Orange Fire Department would like to enlist the support of the community to collect a sizeable donation of new toys for those in need in the Orange area.  The City of Orange Fire Department will coordinate with local charities in the Orange area to distribute the collected gifts where they are most needed.

Donations of new unwrapped toys will be accepted from November 19 through December 10 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. every day of the week. Gifts may be dropped off at the following 3 fire stations within the City of Orange:

  • Central Fire Station – 501 N. 7th
  • Fire Station #2 – 1901 Allie Payne Rd.
  • Fire Station #3 – 1717 MLK Dr.
