Please be advised, during the COVID pandemic, Station Tours are currently cancelled until further notice
Students, clubs, associations and citizens are invited to book a tour of their local fire
station. During station tours, participants have the opportunity to meet the men and women
dedicated to your safety. Learn about the Lethbridge Fire Department vehicles and the
technical firefighting equipment that firefighters use on a daily basis. This is a great
opportunity for participants to learn about fire safety with the people who make it happen.
There is also an opportunity for participants to learn about fire safety. Children receive a fire
safety activity book or child fire helmet at the conclusion of each tour.
