​Fire Station Tours 

Fire Station Tours are an excellent way to gain first-hand knowledge about life in a fire station and are educational for all visitors.  Tours are available to various community groups such as:

  • Preschools
  • School Groups
  • Scout Groups
  • Church Groups

Tours generally last one hour and include visiting the firefighter living quarters, viewing fire and medical equipment and discussion of fire and life safety practices.  Visits may be abruptly ended or postponed if personnel must respond to an emergency.

Children must be closely supervised.  There should be at least one adult per five children. Children under the age of four are discouraged from tours since they are often frightened by the excitement and do not understand the tour.

For your convenience we also have a virtual Fire Station Tour video available to assist with your educational needs or to view at your convenience.  

The Thornton Fire Department does not host birthday parties or send fire engines to birthday parties.
