Station Tours, Firefighter Visits & Community Events

You can request an educational firefighter visit for your school group, a tour of your local station or participation in a community event. Tours and visits are generally scheduled between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. with some evening availability after 7 p.m. Requests need to be made at least four weeks in advance and not more than three months in advance

Station Visit

Station tours last approximately 20-30 minutes and include viewing the fire engine and equipment, talking to firefighters about their job and learning important fire safety tips. Maximum number of participants is 25 (including five chaperones). One chaperone for every five children is required.

Fire stations remain "in-service" during tours and may need to respond to emergencies at any time. If they do, it will be necessary for the tour to end and your group to exit the station. 

Firefighter Visit

Schools and community group requests for a firefighter visit at your location. Minimum group size is 15. A parking area must be provided where the fire engine/truck can get in and out quickly in the event of an emergency. An adequate number of chaperones must be present to quickly clear individuals from the fire engine/truck if there is an emergency.
