Station Tours, Firefighter Visits and 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.
Station tours last approximately 30-60 minutes and include viewing the fire engine and equipment, as well as talking to firefighters about their job and learning important fire safety tips.
Fire stations remain "in-service" during tours. Fire companies 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 unless there is fire department employees at the station.
Schools and community group requests for a firefighter visit at your location. Minimum group size is 10. 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.
Department participation can be requested for events that are open to the public, including health fairs, festivals and other community outreach opportunities.
