2018 marks the Avon Volunteer Fire Department’s 75th Anniversary — 75 years since the Department’s founding and 75 years of providing volunteer services to our families and neighbors in the Town of Avon. We could not be prouder of the work we do as well as those who have done and those who continue to do it. To celebrate this incredible milestone, we’ve planned several special events throughout the year, most notably the Department’s hosting of the 135th Annual Connecticut State Firefighters Association Convention and Parade along with a carnival and food truck festival at 99 Thompson Road the weekend of September 14-16, 2018. There will be a professional fireworks display on Saturday, September 15. For more information about this and other special events, please click HERE.

Welcome to the Avon Volunteer Fire Department.

Incorporated in 1943, the Avon Volunteer Fire Department proudly protects more than 18,000 people living in the 22.6 square mile area that makes up the Town of Avon, Connecticut.  The Department’s mission is to provide fire suppression and prevention, life safety and rescue support, as well as other community support to the citizens of Avon.  In addition, the Department provides mutual aid support to those surrounding communities that, in time of need, may request such assistance.

Staffed entirely by volunteers, the Avon Volunteer Fire Department prides itself on the selflessness and dedication of its 200 members – 77 firefighters, 14 fire police, 16 administrative members, 20 Explorers, 19 active veterans, 10 retired veterans, 32 lifetime members, and 14 honorary members, all of whom play a vital role in the safety of Avon.  The Department operates six companies and 15 pieces of apparatus, including a brush truck, ladder truck, tanker, rescue vehicle, boat, and pumpers.  Four stations are located throughout Town – Company 1 on Darling Drive, Company 2 on Secret Lake Road, Company 3 on West Avon Road, and Company 4 on Huckleberry Hill Road.  Anyone interested in learning more about the AVFD should call (860) 677-2644 or stop by the Company 1 firehouse located at 25 Darling Drive any Monday evening after 7:00.
