FIRE STATION TOURS

This is a great way to meet your local firefighters as well as learn how a fire station operates. Any community group or individual is welcome to arrange a tour of North Riverside Fire Station. The tour will focus primarily on the observation of the fire station's living quarters and fire engines. Guests will also be introduced to the many types of fire-fighting and rescue equipment that is carried on a modern-day fire truck. In addition to viewing the station, fire prevention and safety tips will also be discussed.

Age Group: All ages
Audience Size: 6 - 20 people
Time: 30 minutes
Cost: No cost
Resources Required: One adult supervisor for every five children under the age of 10 who will be participating in the tour.
