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.
