Our department provides many services related to emergency preparedness and response. These services include public education, fire protection, emergency medical services, hazardous materials response, building inspections, plan reviews, and fire inspections just to name a few.
On a daily basis, our members strive to provide exceptional customer service to the residents of our township through rapid response to your emergency, from our three fire stations. Our dedication to quality service is reinforced by the many training hours that are completed by our personnel on an almost daily basis, and the many hours of training that we provide to the community.
We hope that you will find our website to be a valuable tool to gain information about us, as well as an educational tool to provide you with tips to keep you healthier and safer.
If you have any questions about our department, concerns about quality of service that we provide, or would like to complement one of our staff personnel for a job well done, please feel free to contact us.
The Washington Township/ Avon Fire Department will be hosting the 2021 Badge Pinning Ceremony and Recruit Graduation on February 27th, 2021 from 4:30 pm to 6 pm at Harmony Baptist Church.
We will be welcoming eight new firefighters to our department and three new paramedics. We will also be recognizing the promotion of three new Lieutenants and three new Chauffeurs.
While this type of recognition usually calls for quite the celebration, we want to ensure that we are doing so in a safe manner. To reduce the number of attendees, we have limited the number of guests that will be able to attend the event "in-person".
If you or someone you know would like to "virtually" attend, we will also be offering a Zoom link for the community, on shift crew members, and additional family members to use so anyone can attend the recognition event virtually.
Please use the button below to receive the Zoom Link Invite information or watch our LIVE stream on Facebook on February 27, 2021 at 4:30pm EST.
We conducted a Virtual Community Meeting to discuss the plans for the new station, as well as presenting some of the designs and conceptual drawings.
