Fire Station Tours

Fire station bay and trucks.

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.
