Station tours are scheduled by our Fire Department Administrative staff. This is a wonderful opportunity for citizens to come out and experience a fire station, meet the fire crews and learn about the fire apparatus used by our department. Many scout groups, church groups, day care centers, and other community organizations have taken advantage of this opportunity.
The recommended number of people attending a station tour should be between 5 and 20 and all ages are welcome.
A two week advance notice is required for station tours and can be scheduled by calling (480) 503-6300.
