What We Have to Offer

Blood Pressure Check: Fire Apparatus would come to your location and take blood pressures for a maximum of two (2) hours.

Children's Fire Safety House: (Target audience age 6-12 years / Available: May - October in Non-Freezing Temps) A home fire safety classroom on wheels! This mobile trailer, which contains a kitchen, living room, and upstairs bedroom is designed to teach home safety tips via "hands on." A smoke machine creates a fire simulation where students must exit the home as safely as possible. The house features smoke alarms and a phone simulate a call to 911. The demonstrations last approximately 12 to 15 minutes: will accommodate 10 to 12 students at a time. This demonstration is for groups of a minimum of 60 participants.

Classroom Lecture/Neighborhood Association Meetings: Fire personnel come speak to a class/group for approximately one hour about fire and burn safety in the home.

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 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.

Rig Demo/Hat, Coat, and Boot: (Target Audience: Ages 3 & Up) While in service (available for calls) a fire engine or ladder truck, from your neighborhood, will visit your school or citizen group (no birthday parties) and introduce young students to age appropriate fire safety skills. They will demonstrate how a firefighter looks dressed in full firefighting gear and provide a tour of the fire apparatus. This program is done outdoors which requires a parking lot or street big enough for a fire apparatus. This program is approximately 45 minutes in length.

Any other requests must be approved by the fire chiefs office.
