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!
