Classes & Education Tours

Station Tours

We offer tours of our fire stations for your classroom, group or club. Come see where we live 24 hours a day so we're always ready to go on an emergency day or night. You can climb into the driver's seat of the engine and sit in the back of the ambulance. You'll also learn about the fire gear that protects firefighters from the heat and flames of fires. Call the administrative office at 618-692-7540 for more information.
