Request a Station Tour
Want to see what our firefighters do every day? Tour your local fire station and find out. See where fire crews live, train, and serve our community 24/7/365 through prompt, skillful, and caring service.
These tours are a fantastic behind-the-scenes learning experience for community groups, school field trips, or those interested in the fire service as a career.
Request a Ride-Along
Ride-alongs are a great way for members of the public or prospective firefighters to learn more about the fire service. On your ride-along, you will shadow a fire crew for part of their day and experience everything they do (except safer of course.) If you're riding during mealtime, you can even buy into the food fund ($5-$10 usually) and enjoy some fire station cooking.
Keeping the community safe means we have to limit how many riders we can have. River Delta Fire District reserves the right to reschedule, not fill, or cancel your ride-along at any time due to emergency response needs. Ride-alongs are permitted during the week from 10 a.m. p.m. to 8 p.m. During the weekends, rides may be scheduled after lunch. Participants are not allowed to remain at the station after 9 p.m. Please allow a minimum of five business days for us to process your request.
Riders Must be:
To schedule your ride-along, please complete the request form at the bottom of this web page. Note: Fire academy and EMS recruits are required to do ride-alongs as part of their training. These riders will take priority over community member riders in our scheduling process. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding.
The River Delta Fire District aims to educate residents to prevent fires and injuries before they occur. Public education staff schedules on-duty appearances by River Delta Fire District. Public education staff presents fire and life safety lessons to community groups of all ages, hosts informational booths at community events and works with other local agencies to promote the safety of our residents.
