The Ashford Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. It is the sole provider of fire protection services in the Town of Ashford and participates in mutual aid agreements with a number of surrounding towns in Windham and Tolland Counties.  Members of the department operate two fire stations, one located centrally near the intersections of Connecticut Routes 44 and 89 and the second located near the heavily developed Lake Chaffee area at the northern end of Route 89. 

        In addition to its fire responsibilities, the department provides rescue and general emergency services for Ashford and primary emergency ambulance and medical services for the Towns of Ashford and Eastford.  From its Warrenville station, the department operates one ambulance.  As with its fire suppression services, the Ashford Volunteer Fire Department also maintains ambulance and rescue mutual aid agreements.The department is staffed by a combination of paid personnel and Volunteers. In recent years, we have progressed to having paid staff every day from 0600-1800. The AVFD  responds to over 400 emergency medical and rescue calls annually.
