Book a tour of one of Calgary’s fire stations for your family, school group or community group and meet your local firefighters and learn about fire prevention and fire safety. Fire station tours are an opportunity to see and learn about modern firefighting equipment, including our fire trucks, and ask those questions you’ve always wanted to.
If you’re wondering what happens at a tour, or are unable to attend one at a Calgary Fire Department fire station, join us for a Virtual Fire Station Tour.
Tours are offered at 32 stations at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Each tour lasts about half an hour.
Before booking a tour, there are a few things you need to know. Watch the video.
