PURPOSE: All organizations, whether they are a business, non-profit, volunteer or other type of organization relie on various members of the group to provide diverse categories of services. This holds true for the Athens Township Volunteer Fire Company (ATVFC).
While the obvious staffing needs of the Fire Co. are members who are ACTIVE RESPONDERS, there are numerous opportunities for others to become members who may not be interested in responding to emergencies. The ATVFC operates as a small business whose service is the protection of persons, property, and the environment within Athens Twp. and the surrounding area, and our customers are the residents and businesses within Athens Twp.
