About Us

View larger image
The AVFD is made up of your friends and neighbors in and around the village of Aurora. Our members have varied careers, beliefs and experience. Some travel extensively for their careers, others attend Wells college. Some followed in a family members footsteps and some joined through a recruitment campaign. We have retired members and members who are in High School. Our oldest member is 72 and our youngest is 17. Our common thread is a desire to help out in an emergency situation and, when the siren blows, drop whatever we are doing and come to your aid.
