The Orange Volunteer Fire Department is one of the remaining few all-volunteer incorporated fire departments in the State of Connecticut. Active members are on-call to serve our community on a 24-hour / seven-day basis, dispatching from two stations: Station 1 at Orange Center Road and Station 2 at Boston Post Road. During 2009, the OVFD firefighters responded to 460 alarms with an average arrival time of less than five minutes.
As a result of exemplary performance and training, OVFD continues to receive the highest insurance rating for an all-volunteer department by Insurance Services Office ("ISO"). ISO's expert staff assembles information about municipal fire-protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. The rating imposed by ISO directly influences the determination of homeowner insurance rates in a community.
