Fire Safety Programs & Events

Request a Fire Engine

Are you planning a community event? Let the Fire Department be part of it.

To request a fire engine at your next community event, please review the information below. Once you have read all information and the requirements, complete the event request form .

The Fire Department does it’s best to attend as many community events as possible, and ideally requires at least 30 days’ notice.

Be aware that we cannot guarantee that the crew will be able to:

  • attend, due to an emergency call
  • stay on sight, due to an emergency call
  • return, due to additional or lengthy emergency calls

The engine/firefighters must:

  • be located in a position that will have clear, unimpeded access to an exit at all times
  • have final say concerning the placement of the fire engine at the event
