The Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) is proud of their state-of-the-art fire training facility located in Irvine, California. OCFA is a premier public agency providing services that result in no lives or property lost. The RFOTC is an integral part of each team member’s training in order to uphold OCFA’s standards. OCFA serves 23 cities in Orange County and all unincorporated areas.
The Regional Fire Operations and Training Center complex includes a Public Service and Support Center, 911 Communication Building, Vehicle Maintenance Center, Materials Management Center, and Advanced Training Facility.
Work performed by Cannon’s team included field survey and design for site grading and drainage, utilities, street modifications, the preparation of easements and dedication of rights-of-way, and on-site design, for flood emergency with special open channel end pipe design. This project also included street widening of Jamboree Road, right-turn lanes to the site, and traffic signal design at Jamboree and entry to the site.
Specific challenges included fitting all facilities into a limited site footprint. Retaining walls were designed along the adjacent toll road to maximize pad area to fit all building programming. The project was processed and approved by the City of Irvine, Orange County Fire Authority, and Caltrans.
