Firehouse tours are scheduled throughout the year. The Firehouse Tour Program provides the public with a detailed tour of the Firehouse and information on the various apparatus housed at the station.To request a firehouse tour:
Community organizations must send request in writing at least two weeks prior to the scheduled visit to:
Detroit Fire Department

The letter of request should contain the following information:
Name and phone number of contact person
Name of organization or community group
The organization’s fax number and e-mail address
The fire station where visit is requested
The date and time of requested visit
The number of children participants and adult participants

Based on availability, firehouse tours are normally scheduled. However, be aware that all fire apparatus is used for emergencies. If an emergency arises, firefighters must respond. Therefore, if the fire apparatus is not present upon your arrival as you requested, it is being used at the scene of an emergency.
The Detroit Fire Department will have open houses at each of its firehouse location during National Fire Prevention Week, the second week in October. The public is invited to visit and tour City firehouse facilities.
