Company One is located at 25 Darling Drive on the east side of Avon and serves as the primary headquarters of the Avon Volunteer Fire Department.
Headquarters Company was formed in 1973 and is located on the upper level of Company 1. Headquarters is the administrative company for the Avon Volunteer Fire Department. As such, it is the “heartbeat” of the Department.
Two Avon town employees – one full time and one part time – work at Headquarters. They are assisted by a number of volunteers. Much, but not all, of the work done at Headquarters involves working with computer software.
Headquarters Company has many responsibilities, including keeping records of members’ attendance at fire calls, training sessions, and meetings; maintaining inventories of fire gear, equipment, and apparatus; documenting regulations and minutes of membership meetings and meetings of the Board of Directors; and compiling data to meet the Town of Avon, State of Connecticut, and Federal regulations. Headquarters Company also processes new member applications and maintains personnel files.
