The City of Laguna Niguel partners with the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) for fire and emergency medical services.  The OCFA provides comprehensive emergency services to the residents of Laguna Niguel through a regional approach. Fire services in Laguna Niguel are led by our local Fire Chief, Division Chief Jeff Adams.  

Three highly experienced Battalion Chiefs manage the day to day operations in the field.  Working on a rotating schedule, Battalion Chiefs Tim Perkins, George Casario and Mike Contreras respond to emergencies in the city and provide support to education activities and community events.

Three fire stations are located within the City limits:

  • OCFA Station 5, 23600 Pacific Island Drive. Tel: (949) 249-3085
  • OCFA Station 39, 24241 Avila Road. Tel: (949) 831-3232

Mutual Aid

OCFA is an “all risk” emergency response provider.   While medical and fire emergencies are their primary response, they also respond to a wide range of other emergency incidents including hazardous materials response, floods, water rescues, earthquakes, bomb threats, terrorism and more.

Occasionally, large scale natural or man-made disasters strike.  For those incidents where the OCFA is taxed beyond the norm, a complex system of automatic and mutual aid resources are available from outside fire agencies.

Fire Prevention and Education
Responding to emergencies is only part of the duties performed by the OCFA. OCFA is also proactive in preventing emergencies. The Community Risk Reduction section works to assess fire and life safety risks and create education and prevention programs to reduce the chances of bad things happening. They want to ensure that all who work, live and play in our communities recognize and actively participate in their safety.

How The Public Can Help Prevent Emergencies
The public can serve as the first line of attack when it comes to preventing emergencies. When it comes to water safety, please “watch the water”, drowning happens silently and without warning.  Never swim alone, ensure you have barriers around your pool and learn CPR. 

In addition, Southern California lives under the constant threat of wildland fires.  If you live near a wildland urban interface area, please ensure you have a defensible space, are using non-combustible materials and have a plan should a fire occur.
