The Moraga Town Council honored the Moraga-Orinda Fire District with a proclamation during its June 22 Zoom meeting acknowledging the 25th anniversary of its existence and service to the communities of Moraga, Orinda, Canyon and some adjacent unincorporated areas. Before an official fire department was formed in 1923, any fires that occurred prior to that period were extinguished by neighbors, farmhands and cowboys in the area. The Orinda Volunteer Fire Department was formed that year, while the Moraga Fire Protection District began in 1963. The proclamation, signed by Moraga Mayor Steve Woehleke, noted that "MOFD has 65 full-time public safety professionals who responded to more than 3,250 911 calls last year."
