Orange County Fire Rescue’s Office of Public Information is proud to serve our citizens and media partners with timely responses to requests. The Public Information Office is open during traditional working hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. We provide incident information, records and reports, audio files and interviews on topics within our jurisdiction.
Routine media inquiries and public records requests (including 9-1-1 audio) are handled during normal business hours.
EMS calls are listed on the OCFR Active Calls page as a courtesy. Very little or no additional information (protected by HIPPA) related to these calls may be available and is limited to include confirmation of transport.
Orange County Fire Rescue remains the lead organization for the release of information related to fire response in unincorporated Orange County. The Florida Forest Service remains the lead agency for wildfire response.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office remains the lead organization for the release of any information regarding violent crimes (such as shootings, stabbings, and assaults) or suspicious device investigations. These inquiries should be directed to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
The Florida Highway Patrol remains the lead organization for the release of information regarding motor vehicle crashes resulting in significant injury, road blockage or fatalities. Media inquiries regarding motor vehicle crashes should be directed to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The release of information by Orange County Fire Rescue is governed by Florida State Statute 119 and HIPAA privacy laws. The Office of Public Information welcomes inquiries from our media partners and strives to keep citizens and visitors informed about incidents of interest and those that impact public safety, while ensuring the protection of exempt information required by law.
Significant incidents will be posted on Twitter with updates provided as available at https://twitter.com/OCFireRescue.
