Fire Station Tours
Groups of 30 or fewer may schedule tours of fire station 1, the city’s main fire station. This station is staffed with firefighters 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Tours include a look at the living area of the station, an explanation of the different types of fire trucks and a display of some of the tools found on the trucks. Station tours take from 30 minutes to one hour.
Although we are happy to be a part of birthday parties by providing a tour, we are unable to host parties at the fire stations.
Many tours may include witnessing a live fire call. Groups are then able to watch firefighters in action as they prepare to respond.
