In 1960, the Avon Volunteer Fire Department merged with the then independent West Avon Volunteer Fire Department and the Secret Lake Volunteer Fire Department. Four years later, the AVFD built Company 3, replacing the former West Avon Volunteer Fire Department one-bay station located across from the Avon High School main entrance.
Located at 490 West Avon Road, Company 3 is one of the most active companies in the Avon Volunteer Fire Department as it is both centrally located in town and it houses the following four specialized pieces of apparatus:
Over the years Company 3 has played a large role in many of the town’s larger emergency incidents. This company and its specialized apparatus not only provide a valuable service to the Town of Avon, but are often called upon to provide mutual aid assistance to surrounding towns and are part of a specialized multi-town tanker task force.
