"Grab & Go"
Rescue 6, manufactured by Precision Fire Apparatus, is unique to the Chagrin Valley. This diversified piece of apparatus is equipped to handle many different rescue scenarios. Rescue tools (i.e. the jaws of life, hydraulic rams and cutters) are pre-connected to the rear and front of this vehicle. This "grab and go" system provides firefighters with a state of the art system to assist with motor vehicle accidents. The truck also carries 300 gallons of water for vehicle fires. Additionally, a "Class A" foam system is integrated into the pump, allowing foam on demand for certain types of emergencies. A portable light tower located on top of the cab, provides scene lighting that is far superior to the traditional lighting found on most pumpers.

Orange Village Fire Department collects aluminum beverage cans for recycling.
All profits benefit the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Foundation.

In 1986 the Northern Ohio Fire Fighters, the Northeast Fire Chief’s Association, along with MetroHealthMedicalCenter of Cleveland started the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Foundation (ACBC) to help children who suffer severe burn injuries.

If you would like to separate these cans from your other recyclables, please pack them in blue plastic bags and drop them off at the Fire Station at the Village Hall or deposit them in the recycle bins located on the south entrance to Village Hall by the Fire Station.

Emergency Preparedness
In an ongoing effort to keep all Orange Village resident's safe, our administration and safety forces have collaborated to produce the Emergency Preparedness Checklist

We hope that each household will take a moment to ensure they are familiar with this checklist and that every resident of our village takes advantage of the resources we proudly offer.

Please “Help Us To Help You” and take the pledge to be prepared.
