Orange County Fire Services Association has produced a Commemorative Historical Yearbook every ten years. The past yearbooks were published in 1980, 1990 and 2000. These books are produced in a limited edition and only available in the year published through pre orders. I know of many who did not order the past books, only to search the Internet to try to find the year copy desired. If the book was located, they found themselves paying twice what the book originally sold for. These books are an historical keepsake, especially to the service firefighters who are pictured in the book in their respective Orange County Fire Service section. All city, county and federal or related fire services within Orange County are represented in these books. Every fire station, every fire person, plus many newsworthy events are listed, along with special fire service groups. These books are an invaluable historical research source for many years in the future. I can’t tell you how many times I have taken one of these books off the shelf to look up a firefighter’s name, a former chief, a fire event, a piece of apparatus, or even a fire department which no longer exists.

I urge you to please order your book today, before it is too late. The deadline for the 2010 Commemorative Historical Yearbook is September 4th, 2009. You may order by check or credit card. To order and get all the details on the 2010 book, go to the Orange County Fire Services Association web site at: click on the 2010 book thumbnail.
