Station Tours

Fire Station Tours provide a unique opportunity to meet firefighters and learn about what they do through a hands-on learning experience. Residents, schools, service groups, and community organizations may take a field trip to the fire station. Pre-scheduling is requested two weeks in advance of your visit for larger groups. Small groups of a few people or less you can just stop by the fire station. If the crew is not busy they will be happy to show you the station. Stations are open to the public each day from 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM. No special reservation is required for individuals.

A typical station tour at one of Port Ludlow Fire & Rescue's fire station includes, but is not limited to:

  • Age appropriate fire & life safety skills

  • Demonstration of the special firefighting clothes (turnouts)

  • View the fire apparatus and equipment

  • Tour where fire fighters write reports, prepare their meals, exercise and rest

  • Demonstration of some of the equipment and apparatus

  • Pictures, etc

Some criteria to keep in mind when scheduling an appointment:

  • Again, please allow for 2-weeks notice for the large groups

  • We require at least one adult per five children.

  • Please note all stations are working fire stations and crews remain available for response during all tours. In the event a crew is called away during your visit, we will be happy to re-schedule your tour, which may simply be later in the day.

  • Sorry, no requests for personal parties and birthday events. A station tour is a welcomed part of their event.

To schedule a station tour, you can call the main station located at 7650 Oak Bay Rd, at (360) 437-2236 and speak to the administrative assistant or one of the on-duty crews. If no one answers, leave the following information on the voicemail, and a department representative will contact you:

  • Your Name

  • Contact telephone number

  • Date and time of the requested tour

  • Number of participants
