AFRD Turns 100 Year's Old

This year the Auburn Fire Rescue Department will be celebrating 100 years as an organized fire department. Established on September 11, 1917 the department has been responding to the needs of our citizen’s and those who visit us for a century.

The department will be hosting several events throughout the year including a booth at the upcoming craft fair showing some of the department’s older equipment and photos, a kids themed movie night at the Pappas Recreational Complex, Firefighters Memorial Sunday with antique fire truck parade, a department open house and the celebration will end with a 100 Year Anniversary Dinner at the Auburn Elk’s on Saturday September 9, 2017.

Dates for all of these events and others throughout the year will be published through the media, all department and town social media and local cable access. We are asking any residents or former members of the department to send us any photos you may have of past incidents, members, equipment, etc. Please e-mail Fire Chief Stephen Coleman with your information or photos to
