The Boro of Avon-by-the-Sea is unique in that it is blessed with a very large corps of volunteers. Our Fire Department is staffed with 50+ members that provide for the safety and well-being of our residents and visitors in terms of fire, weather threats and general emergencies twenty-four hours a day. The First Aid and Safety Squad has a roster of 30+ highly trained men and women who respond day and night to any and all requests for assistance of medical need and provides support to the Fire Department with all alarms. It is of special note that both of our emergency units assist and support the needs of the surrounding communities on a regular basis. Both the First Aid Squad and Fire Department encourage new volunteers and provide all the training necessary to be a successful and contributing member.
