04/17/12 109 W, 1 I - + 3 - 6 Orange Rural Fire Department Opens Station 3

On Saturday, April 14, Orange Rural Fire Department in Orange County celebrated the grand opening of Station 3 at 2510 Walker Road. That's located north of Hillsborough, off Highway 57. See their Facebook page for a few photos from that day. Below is a photo from Lee Wilson. See a couple more photos.

We've also recently poked around the past of ORFD as well as the Hillsborough FD, an entity that today appears to exist only as a name on the side of a new town-bought ladder truck. See this posting and this posting. One of these days we'll finish that research...

Looking at the map, this looks pretty close to their station 2.

It’s closer to station 2 than I would have thought, but I don’t know if either station 2 or 3 is staffed full time or manned by volunteers?
