We want to thank Firehouse Subs for their continuous support of our department. They recently donated 32 cases of bottled water for us to use during trainings and on scene at an incident.
It is with great sadness that we announce the resignation of our Administrative Assistant, Kelli Brian.
Kelli has accepted a position with the Indiana State University Public Safety Department. Kelli’s last day will be Friday, August 9. Please help us in wishing Kelli the best of luck in the future.
On behalf of everyone at the Washington Township Avon Fire Department, we all cannot express our appreciation for all of Kelli’s great work over the past year. She is an asset that we hate to lose, but understand her reasons for accepting the new position.
Good Luck, Kelli!
We want to extend a special thank you to Avon High School for allowing our crews access to their pool this week to conduct our annual water rescue and swim testing for all of our operational crews.
Please help us recognize some of our employees.
We are proud of their continued service and dedication
to our department.

The Washington Twp./Avon Fire Explorer program is led by two of our A Shift crew members. Bobby Reffett and Doug Phillips do a great job giving young adults ages 14 to 20 a chance to have real life experiences in the EMS and fire career field.
Our post membership is open to all young men and women who meet the age requirements and are willing to make a commitment to being a member of our post.
If you are not sure if you want to be in the fire service or emergency medical service, this program is a great way to give it a try.
Check out the information below provided by the Indiana State Police:
Indiana State law requires motorists to stop when a school bus is picking up or dropping off children. Watch for school buses with their stop arm extended and red lights flashing, which means STOP, not proceed with caution!
This law applies to all roadways EXCEPT those that are divided by a physical barrier or an unimproved median. On a divided roadway, only vehicles traveling in the same direction as the school bus are required to stop. Extra awareness is also required in rural areas where distracted or impatient drivers often ignore school buses when children are getting on or off the bus. Disregarding a school bus stop signal is serious, and you can receive a traffic ticket for doing so.

The Washington Township Avon Fire Department is looking to speak with adult groups in 2019. We will continue to promote fire safety with our early childhood members of the community, but are striving to increase our focus on our ADULT population. Studies show that adults age 65+ are more likely to be injured or killed in a fire.
What are we doing to help our community?
We are offering a 30-45 minute fire safety presentation to your staff or adult group.
Interested in having us present?
Need a guest speaker at your next staff meeting?
Can we speak at your Annual HOA meeting?
Have a church group that would enjoy our presentation?
