As you will see in the graph below, fifteen (15%) percent of all calls responded to were actual fire calls. The Town of Orange experienced a total dollar value of approximately $368,575 due to fire or other emergency events. While this number may seem high, it does not reflect the more than $1.9 million in property saved by the efforts of the fire service in town.
False alarms for 2016 accounted for forty-five (45%) percent of all calls for service. This number is lower than previous years due to Orange's aggressive fire prevention programs in the Fire Marshal's Office, as well as advanced technology used in emergency fire protection systems.
