Fire Station Tours

Fire station tours can provide a unique opportunity to meet firefighters and learn about what they do through a hands-on learning experience. Residents, schools, service groups, and community organizations may schedule a tour.

To schedule a station tour with the Fire Department, please call 209-895-8130 at least three to four weeks in advance of the date you wish to have your tour. Please keep the following in mind:
  • Tours will be scheduled after 10:00 am
  • Please note the fire stations are on 24-hour call and crews remain available for response during all tours. In the event a crew is called away during your visit, we will be happy to reschedule your tour for another day.
When calling, please be prepared to give the following information:
  • Name of the organization or group
  • Name and phone number of the person requesting the tour and or organizer
  • Age range and number of the children if any
  • Day and time that would be best for you
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to providing you a behind-the-scenes look into the Patterson Fire Department.
