Can I schedule a visit to the fire station or can the fire department come visit us?

Yes, please contact Fire Administration at 928-341-8550.  Our personnel will explain our abilities to fulfill your request, obtain the necessary information and schedule your request.

Generally, Fire Station tours for elementary school children will be about 45 minutes and usually focus on the facilities, apparatus, a short (age appropriate) fire safety presentation and an appearance by SPARKY the Fire Dog.  Fire Station tours for children and school classes must be accompanied by sufficient numbers of adults to facilitate the tour and movement of the children.  Our abilities to maintain the attention of groups of greater than 15 children is difficult.  You may want to consider several visits by smaller groups to better address the effectiveness and impact of your visit.

Other specific topics geared toward career orientation, fire extinguisher use or home safety may be possible for adult audiences.  Indicate your desired topic; if we can accommodate your request, we will.
