February 27, 2021 we will be hosting a Badge Pinning and Recruit Graduation Ceremony. We want to thank Harmony of Avon for allowing us to use their venue for the event.
The large space allows us to keep social distance between the limited number of attendees. They are also helping us with broadcasting the event LIVE to our Facebook page.
See more info below.
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.
Harmony Baptist Church will be our venue. 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.
This week, our recruits were able to invite family members out to watch and learn more about what they have been learning over the course of their Recruit Academy.
Recruits completed a vehicle extrication training as well as a live burn with rescue training.
Although it was a cold night, we know the recruits were excited to share this experience with their family members.
Each year, hundreds of Americans are injured or killed by exposure to cold, vehicle accidents on wintry roads, and fires caused by the improper use of heaters. Learn what to do to keep your loved ones safe during blizzards and other winter storms!
