Adopt a Fire Station for the Holidays


The Office of Orange County Mayor is pleased to announce the continued tradition of the annual Adopt a Fire Station initiative for the 2019 holiday season. With the help of Orange County’s Neighborhood Preservation & Revitalization Division, the goal is to once again have all 42 fire stations, as well as our 911 dispatch center, adopted by families and/or local organizations between the weeks of November 24 and January 1, 2020. You may sign up to adopt a station from November 1 through November 23.

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, with adoptions scheduled for 45 minutes. 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 use the phone in front of the station to check crew return status.

This year we encourage any full meals be prepared by restaurants or experienced cooks to ensure quality food prep standards. For those who plan to provide a meal, a recommended balanced menu is listed below.

  • Protein (i.e. chicken, turkey, eggs, etc.)
  • A vegetable (i.e. broccoli, corn, etc.)
  • A starch (i.e. potatoes, bread, etc.)
  • A dessert

Selecting a Station

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, special operations center and headquarters. The 911 center, special operations and headquarter crews are located in the Forsyth/University area. View this list of fire stations to find addresses.
