The Allenton Volunteer Fire department operates out of one station protecting a mix of rural farms and residential properties with a small amount of commercial and light industrial development. Our department is a public department whose members are all volunteer.
On July 20, 1907 residents of Allenton signed the agreement which started the Allenton Volunteer Fire Department. Today the department provides fire and emergency medical services to Allenton and the Town of Addison which Allenton is part of. The department also responds to emergency calls in the Towns of West Bend and Wayne located in Washington County and the Town of Herman in Dodge County. The department has forty-five active members about half of which are Emergency Medical Technicians. Apparatus includes two Type 1 engines, one with a fifty foot Telesquirt, an equipment, command vehicle, two tankers (tenders), a BLS ambulance and a van. Allenton is located 25 miles northwest of Milwaukee on USH 41 at STH 33.
