When it comes to fire training, there’s no such thing as enough. As volunteers who train to the level of career firefighter, members of the AVFD are required to recertify at least annually. The AVFD is partnering with the Farmington Fire Department to build a new live fire training facility, allowing members to retain the proficiency of their special skills. AVFD members will be able to practice and improve their skills in a realistic setting with a more reasonable time commitment, learning how to better protect themselves so they can better protect the residents of Avon and their property.

The AVFD is all-volunteer and funded by the Town of Avon. However, the town budget is unable to provide complete funding for the Live Burn Training Facility and the Department must raise $500,000 by July 2014.
