Please help us help you by taking the following advice:

•Visitors are permitted only when firefighters are in quarters at the station.
•Be aware that visits may be shortened or canceled if unanticipated changes occur in the firefighters’ schedule.
•Stay safe by being aware of the heavy equipment and apparatus around you.
•Sturdy, low-heel shoes are a good choice.
•Groups with young children must insure an adequate number of adult chaperones.
•If driving to the fire station, park vehicles so they do not block the emergency response route of fire apparatus.
•Visits may/will be abruptly ended if personnel must respond to an emergency!
