Our Firefighters are proud of the work they do and enjoy sharing their expertise in fire safety with the community. But, because their duty is to be first responders in emergencies, tours may be canceled or be abruptly terminated when an emergency call comes in. Tours and site visits are approximately 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the station or group.
