On June 8th, 2005, crews moved into their new Fire Station 2 located just 500 feet east of the original station on Welch Road. The original station 2 was completed in 1980 and had served the city well for 25 years. Additional manpower and equipment were added to this station over the past few years due to the rapid growth in this section of the city and a new larger station was necessary. This new station covers the North end of the City. Under contract with Orange County, station 2 once covered all the way to the Lake County line. In 1996, the Orange County Board of Commissioners voted to return this unincorporated area to the Orange County Fire/Rescue Division. However, since that move, at the request of several property owners, the City has annexed much of this area back and most recently annexed another 900 acres bringing station 2's response area back to the Lake County line. With tremendous growth occurring north of town, a new fire station is planned and most of the far North City limits will becovered by fire station 5 in the near future.
