A tour of the Fire Station can help you understand that our Firefighters work a 24 hour shift and they live at the fire house.
You can tour the trucks. There is a great deal of equipment on the trucks and the firefighters can explain what it is all about, what type of call it is used for, and how it is used.
You can gain an understanding of the firefighters' gear. A firefighter can put on the gear, including the face mask, to show children not to be afraid.
You may be a Scout working on a badge. Boys and girls who are working on fire prevention, emergency awareness, or first aid badges can come tour the station to earn these. It might not all be done at one visit - but that's okay, just schedule to come back again!
Home school groups, or church youth groups may want to learn more about their community and the services the firefighters provide. Many don't realize that we are first responders, not just firefighters. This means all firefighters are trained to respond to medical emergencies, vehicle accidents, and more.
Tours are scheduled on a first come, first served basis after approval from the on-duty Battalion Chief. If your request is approved you will receive an email confirmation; otherwise we will contact you to make different arrangements.
Due to the many requests, tours are reserved for residents in our fire district.
