AAFD Assists in Hurricane Irma Efforts  


Thank you to the three Ann Arbor firefighters who were deployed to Florida on September 9 to assist in Hurricane Irma rescue and recovery operations. Lt. Allen Bruck (not pictured), Captain James Budd and Firefighter Bryce McAllister are members of the Michigan Urban Search and Rescue Task Force 1 and have specialized training in technical rescue and handling highly trained search dogs. We are especially grateful to these firefighters and the entire 36-member team from 22 fire departments across the state for their dedicated service to helping those impacted by Hurricane Irma.    

Car Seat​​ Safety  

On the 2nd Wednesday of the month we partner with C. S. Mott Children's Hospital to host a community Car Seat Fitting Station at Fire Station #6, 1881 Briarwood Circle, Ann Arbor, Michigan  48104.  Please call

Residential Entry System for AAFD

Knox HomeBox enables firefighters rapid entry to your home without damage if you're not home or unable to open the door.  Knox HomeBox is a key safe mounted outside that can be unlocked only by the fire department.  This is a voluntary alternative to forced entry, delayed entry or no entry when the fire department is called to your home for a medical emegency or fire alarm activation.
