Orange County Releases Statement Following Decertification of the Orange Volunteer Rescue Squad

Orange County’s ability to respond to all medical emergencies was not affected by the recent decision to decertify the Orange Volunteer Rescue Squad as an emergency medical service agency. In partnership, the Orange County Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services and the Lake of the Woods Volunteer Rescue Squad will continue to meet the emergency medical needs for all Orange County citizens whenever the call comes____day or night.

If there is a medical, fire, or law enforcement emergency, call or text 911. Your call or text will be received by the Orange County Emergency Communications Center and the appropriate first responders will be dispatched to the location of the emergency.


The Board of Supervisors takes seriously the critical importance of emergency medical services and is committed to doing its part to protect the health and safety of Orange County citizens now, and into the future.
