Setting Up a Fire Station Tour

Many groups tour the fire stations each year.  To arrange a tour of the fire station, call the Marion Fire Department at 377-8237 or email the Fire Department and indicate your desire to set up a tour.  The following information is helpful:
-  Date and time of the tour
-  Number of children and/or adults expected
-  A contact person name and phone number

The tours usually last from 10-30 minutes, depending upon the age and attention span of the tour members. Tour members will be shown the station, apparatus, living quarters.  A brief fire safety discussion is also included.  Department personnel are happy to address any specific question or need that the specific group may have. Children will usually be given coloring sheets at the conclusion of the tour.  Other safety brochures and information sheets are also available.

In the event that an emergency arises just before the tour, the Department will make every effort to phone the contact person to re-schedule the tour.

Due to high demand during certain times of the year, we may be forced to limit tour requests to groups from Marion only.


Setting Up a Neighborhood Tour

Marion Fire Department will occasionally be asked to attend a neighborhood gathering or business picnic to provide safety discussions and to display a truck.  To arrange a visit from the Fire Department, call the Marion Fire Department at 377-8237 or email the Fire Department and indicate your desire to set up an appointment.  The following information is helpful:
-  Date and time of the visit
-  A contact person name and phone number

In the event that an emergency arises just before the visit, the Department will make every effort to phone the contact person.
