Fire Station Tours

Firefighters are in service for the purpose of providing emergency response. Based on availability around emergency calls and other duties, they may also be able to conduct educational fire station tours.

Groups of 6 or More

We request one month of advance notice to set up a specific time and date for a group of 6 or more. Availability is limited and dependent on emergency calls. Requests are accepted by the Administration office at 719-547-7337, or simply complete and submit the online form and someone will get back to you within a couple of business days.

Groups of 5 & Fewer

Groups of 5 and fewer may stop by a neighborhood fire station and ask to speak to the company officer to request a tour. The officer will try to accommodate these requests whenever possible.

  • Meals
  • Prefire inspections
  • Routine maintenance
  • Safety training

Visitor Tips

  • Be aware that visits may be shortened or cancelled if unanticipated changes occur in the firefighters' schedule.
  • Groups with young children must insure an adequate number of adult chaperones.
  • If driving to the fire station, park vehicle so that it does not block the emergency response route of fire apparatus.
  • Stay safe by being aware of the heavy equipment and apparatus around you.
  • Sturdy, low-heel shoes are a good choice.
  • Visitors are permitted only when firefighters are in quarters at the station.
  • Visits may/will be abruptly ended if personnel must respond to an emergency!
