We are currently seeking new members!
Membership in the Ashford Volunteer Fire Department is open to all citizens of Ashford who are 18 years of age or older. Those interested in participating in department activities can apply for one of two classes of membership--active and social. Active members are those who respond to fire, medical and rescue emergencies. Active membership requires specialized training and a defined level of participation in department operations. Some active members choose to specialize in multiple operational areas whereas others specialize in only one. The department provides all active members with their training and personal equipment free of charge. In addition, they receive such other benefits as accidental death and dismemberment insurance and a property-tax abatement after two years of service to the department. Upon joining the department, active members serve a six-month probationary period.
Persons meeting membership requirements and interested in applying should fill out an application (available below) and present it at the next regular meeting of the organization. Regular meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at Station 20 (on Route 89 just north of the intersection with Route 44) and begin at 7:30 p.m.
