Volunteering our time to help the community goes beyond just sitting around the firehouse waiting for the gong to ring.

candle-light-vigilWhether the emergency that we respond to has a positive or negative effect, our volunteers truly care about every citizen that comes into our lives.  AVFRD is in all aspects of the phase, “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”!  Last week, AVFRD continued our STRONG sense of duty and responsibility to our community in supporting a family that recently lost a family member to a pedestrian struck car accident.  We wanted to show our support to the family during a candlelight vigil held on 5/15/2014.  AVFRD added a new phase or meaning to our department, “Neighbors Supporting Neighbors”.  Thoughts and prayers goes out to the family from all of us at AVFRD.
