A Message From the Chief

The Avon Fire Department serves the City of Avon, a rapidly growing city approximately 20 miles west of Cleveland. We provide fire protection and paramedic service for 21,193 residents. We are a young progressive department that went full time in 2003.

Above and beyond emergencies, we are very service oriented towards our residents, offering many extras such as CPR, child car seat inspections, senior's lock box program, and station tours. We also will attend block parties when requested.

Our department works hand and hand with other Lorain County fire departments to provide numerous specialty rescues. We have personnel trained for rope rescue, rescue diving, ice rescue, swift water rescue, confined space rescue, building collapse rescue, trench rescue and hazmat.

I'm sure that you will find that the City of Avon is wonderful place to live and raise children, and you can be assured that they will have the finest in fire protection and emergency medical services.
