Orange County Fire Authority is hosting its 7th Annual Open House on Saturday, October 13th from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at our Regional Fire Operations & Training Center located at 1 Fire Authority Road (Jamboree & Tustin Ranch Rd.) in Irvine. This is the big enchilada of fire apparatus, firefighting skills, and firefighting tools all under one big umbrella, our headquarters facility. Back by popular demand is the Urban Search & Rescue dog demonstration, making two jaw-dropping illustrations of their amazing talent and skills by finding live victims. There will also be a fundraising kick-off at 1 p.m. for the 9-11 Memorial, which includes a steel beam from the Twin Towers donated by the FDNY.
To see how firefighters prepare and stay abreast of current firefighting techniques, demonstrations on the training grounds will occur every half-hour beginning at 10:30 a.m. Make sure to stop by the courtyard area for interactive displays and educational opportunities.
