Block Parties

There is a high demand for fire department apparatus to visit neighborhood block party events. Done as an in-service detail, we welcome the opportunity to meet our residents on this informal basis. Firefighters demonstrate their tools of the trade and provide insight to some of the mysteries of our job:
  • Why firefighters cut holes in roofs and break windows
  • How much water is on an engine
  • Why fire engines are red
Block parties can be scheduled using our Public Education Event Request Form and should be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance.
