About Fire Station Tours

(Target Audience: Age 5-12 years)

Tours of fire stations are available to school and citizen groups on a limited basis and will be scheduled at a convenient time for both LFR personnel and citizens. These tours are conducted by on-duty firefighters in service (available for calls) who work at the specified fire station requested. The tour typically includes what comprises a "typical" day at the fire station, along with a description of the fire equipment used during various types of emergency incidents. This tour will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. We ask that tours be for groups of 50 people or less. Larger groups are allowed, but by special request only and only at specific stations.


About Classroom Show and Tell / Lecture

(Target Audience: Ages 3 & Up)

While in-service to be able to respond to 911 emergency calls, a fire engine or ladder truck will visit your school or citizen group and introduce young students to age appropriate educational topic. Typical topics may include basic fire safety skills, introduction to emergency response equipment (Rig Demo), or introduction to fire suppression clothing (Hat, Coat, and Boot Demo).

Rig Demos are completed outside and typically require a cleared space in a parking lot. Since these educational programs are completed outside, due to weather conditions, rig demos are prohibited November 15 - March. Hat, Coat, and Boot Demonstrations will provide participants with a visual representation of the protective gear firefighters wear during emergency operations.

Please note that due to recent studies on firefighting personal protective gear, LFR members will no longer be bringing their firefighting gear into schools or daycares for public education events.
