AVON, CO – The Town of Avon and Eagle River Fire Protection District (ERFPD) are pleased to announce they will be hosting a groundbreaking ceremony for the Joint Public Safety Facility at 10 a.m. on Thursday, August 11, 2016.

•Facilitates police and fire working collaboratively on a day-to-day basis
•Meets all staffing, equipment, storage and operational needs for the next 50 years and beyond
